I thought we should have the odd quiz looking forward to seeing places again ...

Which is the odd one out, and why?   Sets of 4. Please just try one each (I'm sure they'll all go very quickly indeed!

Is A at Waterloo, except the lower right Paddington?

The writing on the floor had to be added when they found that people staring at their mobiles kept accidentally walking past the clock.   Grin

OK - to boldly guess in relation to a town whose centre I don't think I have visited for about 30 years - the second set (except bottom left) are I think all Melksham (does this mean the other one is the Taunton question?!)

This is an odd quiz - there are no Taunton ones.   You are correct in 3 x Melksham. Where is the fourth picture, though?

Set B Bottom left Chippenham?

Yes, it is ... with the normally busy pick up and drop off (short term) car park lying idle. Recent picture - on my (only) essential local trip of the year so far.  Other picture in the quiz (bar 1) are over 11 months old.
