Yes indeed - Weston Milton and Ashchurch for Tewkesbury!

Now - did you know the other three as well and just leave them for someone else, or have I managed to make them a little trickier?

Nope - sorry. I only know Weston Milton as I remember looking at the car park closely yesterday whilst bored on a 143  Cheesy
Ashchurch sticks out for having that hideous bridge!

That's right, Tom (B-o-A) ... and the p.m. business on the other quizes was to help give other people something of a chance - most of us don't travel up and down to the extent that you do!  Unless you jump quickly back in with either of the remaining answers, you've not totally blown the fun for others.

Ermmm.  I think 4 might possibly be Nailsea & Backwell (he offered, smugly!)  Grin

However, that's the only one I can name.  Good choices, grahame!

William Huskisson MP was the first person to be killed by a train while crossing the tracks, in 1830.  Many more have died in the same way since then.  Don't take a chance: stop, look, listen.

Indeed - number 4 IS Nailsea and Backwell.  Which leaves just number 5 ...

....and number 5 is Upwey.   (It does remind me slightly of Pewsey, though!)
