11. No idea where it is. The long shadows suggest a month in the winter half of the year, but the clothing worn by the nearest person suggests warm temperatures. We had some exceptionally warm weather in the last week of February last year, so I will suggest then.

Correct - good logic there!

Yes

12. Tilshead - I recognise the tacky pub sign in the background !

Yes

10 Weymouth August

Location correct ... not August (that month's picture already identified  Wink )
must be July then

Yes, it was!

7 is surely Clifton Down. But I've no idea which month. I'll make a random guess if I have to; it's dark and there are a fair few people waiting, so it's winter, how about November/

Tuesday had come down through Dundrum and Foster Avenue, brine-fresh from sea-travel, a corn-yellow sun-drench that called forth the bees at an incustomary hour to their bumbling.

Yes, it is Clifton Down.  You're right that it's a winter picture, but not November.   That's quite a tricky one to date accurately!

8. October Euston?


Correct with Euston ... month very hard on that one - not October I'm afraid.

OK - I'll go for November as I think the picture was actually taken on Saturday November 30?

Sorry, it would have been late on the Friday evening. Your travelogue mentions traveling up on the Saturday?

3 is Dublin. No clue on the month. The shadows are long, but that proves nothing as it isnít daylight.

the last time we had 3 in a quiz was in October 2019, and it was taken at Saggart the same day. Can't see why that would have changed this time ...

? Did it ... have to go back and look.  I may have misrepresented something then. I travelled up on the Sunday night ... which made it Sunday 1st December - I recall getting to Motherwell and my connection and place of work somewhat before it was unlocked and sitting waiting on a cold wall in the dark for the keyholder.   The wall, it turned out, had been covered in ice which melted as I sat on it.

The clues, indeed, are out there  Grin. ... never waste a good picture using it just once, and we have new and occasional members who may have missed it the first time.

You have an ... extended ... sense of fairness there.  I would be delighted to give you the brownie points for giving the month, added to the brownie points for - I recall - a lift back to Temple Meads at the end as I hit the 90 minute evening gap on "The Beach".
