No (19).

One question left, my answer to Q17 gives a bit of a clue.

I can assure you that I have thought of nothing else since this thread started.

In that case, do you want to ask the last question? I technically can't, (though I have a random idea of a possible place.)
After you, madam - I'll wait for the next direct train to Mill Hill East.

I'll let Robbie give his guess before I tell you where I am.

  • That's very kind of you! Here goes then:
Are you standing outside a disused pub in Acre Road, Kingston, which may or may not have once been called The Crow's Nest?

No, it's not that obscure! The place I am at has it's own Wikipedia article.

Well, I'm happy for you to put us out of our misery now :( ; I can't find anywhere else that fits!

I am on Eel Pie Island in the middle of the River Thames.

Y'know, I'd seen the island in my searches, and thought 'I wonder if?' But I had it in my mind that you were south of the Thames.

Then I looked at the question again, and realise you said you weren't north of the Thames!
