Probably an easy one..............

Usual quiz rules apply - but I doubt it'll last that long!

Well, 24 hours have passed; 60 views but a distinct lack of replies.

I conclude - either a complete lack of interest or this is too hard.

If the latter, then this may help. If the former, then if no further responses in the next few hours, mods have my permission to remove this thread.

Phil, I'm going to offer you a third option and ask if the picture at the address is visible to everyone?

Personally I've not been able to view it.    Now - until tomorrow morning I'm on ship where the description of the internet as "full access" is a joke - loads of high bandwidth sites and content types locked out to help ensure that the thin link up to the satellite is shared.     I had assumed that others can see your picture ... there are others I have not been able to see ... but perhaps that assumption was wrong.

Let's leave the thread for another 24 hours at least?

Agreed.   I canít see a picture.  Iím on a 320Mbps gfast connection.  😁

EDIT:  Although if I cut and paste the link I can see the picture.  Even more strangely if I then go back to the forum the picture is there!

Oh and I still donít know where it is!

I do not understand. In 24 hours nobody has mentioned this. I showed it to somebody at work earlier and they were able to view it on their smartphone on a guest logon with no Wifi available other than their mobile provider.

I could see the photograph from the begining.  Still don't have a clue where it might be.  The only thing I can offer up is that the signal is an BR-WR lower quadrant one (well you would expect me to know that wouldn't you  Roll Eyes).

I see where you are coming from, but sadly, it is not.

Indeed, yes. A very pleasant day out on the Plym Valley Railway coupled with a walk in Plymbridge Woods.

Bah! It's somewhat disconcerting to realise (not for the first time) that a "where was I" quiz picture, that I was certain I didn't recognise, was in fact taken from somewhere that I probably once was standing!
