Here’s one that might take a bit longer. (Hopefully).

Again I’ve taken it from a book but and if no one gets it immediately then I will answer questions and give the odd clue.

I don’t know but I’m trying to think why a phone box would be famous. The location looks like a quiet village somewhere and there are few clues to give it away. I assume we need to work out the famous phone box first and that would reveal the location?

^^^ yes if you know the significance of the phone box in its fictional setting, it is easy enough to find out the village that was used as a location in the film…

I haven’t a clue about either, though the building with the anchor in front looks very Hemingway to me.

My first thought was Pennan (Film: Local Hero) but the location doesn't look right!

^^^ and the winner is scooter!

I am off to phone my agent.

We stayed in Bampton for a week last September. About 100 yards down the track on the right hand side of the road.
