Re: Where Am I?

I ought to be ashamed of myself. If I am right, my husband painted this picture and we had it hanging in our lounge for years.

I think it may be ... ... ...

Monsal Head Viaduct

In my defence I was looking for an aquaduct.

If it's wrong, I'll try again.

Re: Where Am I?

I thought you would get it.

I was so intrigued with the staircase, I took lots of pictures. Have you been there, or could you see the name of the street?

I got better images than that one, but they didn't have a clue and unless you had been, I don't think you would guess (unless all Apple shops have this staircase).

Over to you.

Re: Where Am I?

I have never been there or to any other Apple store.. I guessed it was Glasgow which I have been to, searched for "Ingle Weav shop Glasgow" and up it popped. Then Google street view, looked around and spotted the staircase through a window and the Apple logo clinched it.

That's the trouble with this game, Google has made it too easy often.

I'll post one last one then retire I think

Re: Where Am I?

Oh dear - hints needed.

It's a very deep lock

Part of the boat name is "Infanta" which give a clue to the country

Re: Where Am I?

Thanks Mike
The Douro lock might be the deepest in Europe at 102 feet in two chambers (60 + 42) but the deepest I've been through was at the 3 Gorges Dam in China which drops 370feet through 5 chambers. Each chamber is 918feet long and 115ft wide. There is now an ship elevator too (390ft x 60ft) that lifts 3000 tons of ship and water reducing the transit time from nearly 4 hours to 40 minutes




This is a model showing the two linked sets of locks (5 up & 5 down)


I'm now off to find a really obscure one
