^^^^ Wrong direction? So it’s dawn and therefore the east coast?

^^^^ Yup, and the architectural influence is genuine.

To avoid doubt we're talking UK.

Much the best way, Neil - thanks. I could have killed the question stone dead but I PM'd Guy instead. We can have fun seeing what others make of it.

Interestingly, your phone box meant nothing to me as it required one to have seen the film! :lol:

^^^ I remember the film, but had no idea of the specific location used for filming, until we stayed in the village. The information in the cottage mentioned it, so I took a few pics to use in the other forums “where am I now thread”. Not surprisingly it drew a blank until I gave a few heavy clues. :)

My initial PM to Guy had me guessing a bit further around the coast. The boat is in the wrong location, is my excuse! :lol:

Here is one that is not on the east coast of the UK.

I’m at a loss with Guys east coast sunrise. I’ll leave it for others to figure it out and I look forward to the he reveal in a days or so time. I assume that unmade boat in the foreground is the clue?

On to Steve’s next. A rather elaborate gothic church..... you’ll have to leave that one with me for a while.

^^^^ A clue for you Iain.

There is a connection with Benjamin Britten and an annual music festival. :wink: :wink:

I'll grant you that. Another clue will come later if no-one gets it.

Ah if it is where I think it is….

I always enjoy the film. A true epic. :)

^^^ An epic indeed. The city also provides a key moment in another film made more recently. If you are reading this you're looking at two other clues. More later.

^^^KCM I think that I may recognise that rather tall spire.

Is the pic taken from the multi-storey car park in New Street?

On the other hand my cathedral recognition may be way off! :lol:

^^^ One of the most harmonious of cathedrals, built in pretty much a single style and a single period. PM sent earlier.

Good guess. Actually it was a bit further east... A traffic queue on the Churchill Way approaching college roundabout. You do get a bonus point for an impressive guess on where i(it was Mrs Milkman, to be accurate) took the picture

Well, my initial thoughts were Angkor, Bodhgaya and Borobudur. None of which turned up a likely image.

Recent research indicates it might be B____ in M______ which used to be B____.
