I certainly haven't submitted an entry yet, but I think 3/8/10/11 could be (comparatively) nice gentle ones, 7/13 could be time-consuming drudgery, 15 could be disproportionately annoying, 19 could be genuinely interesting (I am assuming a D....... or B......... connection) and 20 could turn out to be be both amusing and interesting ...

I got 11 almost straight off, although there's one detail on the sign that left me scratching my head until I checked TfL's traffic updates!

So far I think I've got answers to 5, 8, 10, 11, 14, 16 and 20, plus one possible for 7. 14 is particularly esoteric I think.

I've got 5 saints for Q7. Q4 isn't the obvious answer.

11. The roadsign is wrong (and I mean the roadsign that is there is wrong, which was my misgiving after getting it immediately, as (and I don't think I'm give too much away) the only bit that is the correct colour on that sign is the white bit with the NR symbol in it.

I have an Email ready to go, with my answers, and explaining fully why this is wrong, and will post up here after the answers have been published.#

I've listed all the Saints stations, and then my answers, and missed one with a pair off my final list! I also got five with some help from a list of all NR stations!

I don't understand. The image is clearly just digitally altered from a photograph of the actual sign. There are even trees and a building in the background. How can it be the wrong colour? It's the same colour as the actual sign in Google Street View.

Signs with a green background are only supposed to be used on Primary Routes. The sign in question is at a location inside the boundary of the London inner ring road, within which there are no Primary Routes, so it should be a white-backed sign.

It threw me for exactly that reason.

OK. Now I understand.

It does seem like every sign on and around that junction has a green background.
