Don’t know if it’s right yet. Might be a load of old twaddle! :default_blush:

Well we are nearly there, just the last bit is not quite right.

H from Steve Hogarth the front man of Marillion who replaced Fish in (I think) 1989

Addis from the mop people

Coe as is Baron Coe, Olympian and current head of the IOC, H Addis Coe

The Loke, as we already established, but not the telegraph pole.

Explore the Loke, especially the hedges and see what else you can turn up.

For Acle, the time is indeed 11:55

Where Old meets New, the junction of Old Road and New Road. On that corner is a Bus Stop "Post Sub" and on that, just above a stone with the Year 2000 is a clock, showing (roughly) 11:55

I think I may have the answer but as I didnt get any of the actual clues myself (nor could I have done - I was just curious to see what was there)I will wait and give those that have a decent chance.

I, for the same reason as WherryNice, will try and keep schtum (is the the right spelling??). I haven’t taken another walk along The Loke yet but I will. I did go up and down a couple of times so I should have gone to Specsavers first obviously!

feel free to chip in WherryNice, the ideal outcome is for different people to answer the different parts of the clue. I only ask people not to answer consecutive parts in order to give more people the chance to join in. Thank you to those who have done that, despite the urge to reveal the answers!

Well if you two aren't going to ask, I will.

Is it a gate?

My original roller answer was from The Loke near Acle, but this gate is at Haddiscoe.

Well done Mrs V though. Very impressive :default_icon_clap:

Nice Cap’n. I get the feeling Paul was having a go at me for chipping in when it had all gone quiet but I’m getting used to that feeling. 😉

I'm sure he wasn't having a go at you Mrs V, especially as I am sure there wasn't anybody else about to come forward and work it out like you did, it had Grace and I scratching our heads I can tell you

Brilliant stuff :default_icon_clap:

That certainly wasn't intended. I'm trying to be nice at the moment, but it is hard!

Well done everyone who found the garden gate with the spokes, (in the hedge, with spokes but not a wheel) - t'was indeed the garden gate.

 

this was might be a bit more tricky, are you ready?

Not dropped off

13 not out perhaps?

There should be laughter after pain, there should be sunshine after rain

Why is it hard? :default_sad:
I will refrain from joining in this one, I’ll beaver away in the background.

They must be avid readers of the NBN

We certainly seemed to have drawn a blank without the expertise of Mrs V however

I thought 13 not out may relate to a cricketing term, does it have a specific name?

Sorry Vanessan, I had not meant to cause any offence. Anyone who knows me will understand I find being nice very hard, i was nothing that you have done or said. Please continue to beaver away in the foreground. I think we need your insight. 

The later lines will be easier if you can solve line one, which sounds tricky, but take it literally and it becomes quite clear .... not dropped? ......
