Re: Where Am I?

Thanks Audrey
We were there some years ago, sadly during a water shortage so none of the fountains were working.
Hopefully will get back there some day...

In the meantime try this one

Well I'll give you it but I wasn't actually AT the Battle of Lund but at the Memorial that as you can see used cannon from the battle as ornamentation.

These are proving to be frustratingly easy...

... Over to you Mike while I look for a really difficult one.

Re: Where Am I?

I thought it was really hard and had been Googling for ages. I now searched under the date and it came up first time.

The date was the clue - but there were other battles that year (aren't there always) and not all in Sweden.

Re: Where Am I?

I have even googled images of Viaducts in the midlands and still don't have any idea.

Surely if someone can get a village shop on an obscure island they can get a well known English landscape feature.
