When I was out yesterday I took a picture of not one, but FOUR paving slabs together!

Would anyone like to hazard a guess as to the station they can be found at? PM me with your answers.

OK, maybe I should put a date on it.

The closing date is midday on Saturday the 12th of December. You may as well guess and see if you get it right.

Having four paving slabs just makes it far too easy Neil ;) It is quite obviously Bank. (Disclaimer: If that is actually correct, I'll be totally gobsmacked).

Well, as you've has now made your answer public I may as well abandon the PM method of answering and just get you to argue about it in the thread.

To be fair, I though that as no skill nor knowledge (I await to be further flabbergasted by being proven wrong) is required to guess an answer to this, that it was a "post in thread" topic - I don't mind PMing you my guess if you'd rather?

I don't really think it matters if people openly discuss it - it's going to be either a very good guess, or someone is going to be standing on it thinking "ooh, this looks like that paving slab on the forum".

Right then, as this is just a bit of fun (and easier looking than the previous one), I'll have a guess that it's Stratford. It looks new enough to be the Jubilee, but it's outside, I think, so that limits it to a choice of one station, maybe!

I'm going to say Paddington... purely because in the short time I've been here I can't see Mr Tubeguru going out of his way to take a photograph of some paving slabs and it's the kind of thing I would do on my way back from a long shift...
