Where Am I? UK #10 (Found in Winchester)

Post by RobbieM » 25 Jan 2014, 16:04

Okay - it's been a while since one of these general 'Where Am I?' competitions.

I need you to find me somewhere within the UK, accurate to the nearest square metre. This is a place where I have actually been at some time within the last month.

Forty questions should do it. If not, I may grant an extension. Fire away somebody!

After you, madam - I'll wait for the next direct train to Mill Hill East.

Are you in England?
This is a Central line train to "Woodford via Hainault"- it always is, except when you actually want one!

Are you south of the red line on this map?

[Just to clarify - is this 20 or 40 questions?]

  • An interesting map/line - wonder what it represents?

Yes (2/40)
  • It's 40 questions. Sorry for the confusion - I realised an hour ago that I'd put 20 by mistake! Wondered if I could correct it before anyone spotted, but no!

It's the Severn-Wash line - the one that politicians and economists are usually referring to when they talk about the "north-south divide".

    I had a feeling it may be something like that - thanks for confirming.

Well that's basically got it down to either Dorset, Hampshire or parts of Wiltshire then.

That actually doesn't leave much of an area at all.
