Paul, March 14 in The Broadscot Lounge
Thank you Paul, I really appreciate your words.
My thoughts on line one are that N O T dropped from somewhere in a place name might produce another place name. Or alternatively T O N! (Loads of those on the Broads.) It’s a hard one apart from line three which should become apparent I think once lines one and two have been solved.

I was completely on the wrong track with my thinking on that first clue. Your hint to grendel took me in another direction entirely Paul and, as you said, it all becomes clear once you know where you are headed. Nice one but I will keep it to myself ftb. 🤐

Penny Gate Staithe.
I am still to be convinced there is such a staithe as Pennygate!
this has me thinking of the giant pike in the museum of the broads, except I cant recall where they were caught.
so far my thinking has got to 'caught off nobes strait'
remember that you are looking at locations in and AROUND Broadland, not just places immediately on the river .....
Wot, know won cort on yet?? 😉
So...putting all of the above hints and clues together(about line one) I have deduced that the area in question is Corton near Lowestoft...........( I am so rubbish at these!)
one blue, one green wheely bins wy worry caravan park corton
Oooo err ... I have just found time to read this thread through ... I'm not managing to solve any of these clues, I can only see what they are once someone has said the answer.
So where are we up to with this one as I've been around Corton a few times. I can see how that would fit the first clue. What do we have to get next?
The blue and green wheelie bins are just what we are looking for ...
Not dropped off ---- caught on >> Corton
13 not out perhaps --- Bakers Score
The lyrics were from Dire Straits' Why Worry
and standing at the end of the drive are two wheelie bins, blue and green.
Get ready, we'll move on from Corton tomorrow
well i suppose i should be grateful i managed to get one bit of that
I got the Why Worry lyric early on so knew that would be the final destinstion but I didn't allow for the funny spelling so it got me nowhere.....
There’s lots of little pathways called Scores in Lowestoft that take you up from the old beach village area to the top of the cliff. They have a race every year where people run along the seafront then up a very steep hill along the cliff top then up and down some of the scores.
I'll refrain from saying this one is easier, as the clues all seem easy when you know what they mean
Catchers of the clupea
a burrow for this Beatles' choristers
Not the bins this time, but a warning
What is it?
first line herringfleet?
you might, or might not have noticed that I'm using the trophy response as the "ta da" used on the radio. I know it's official label is thanks (which I always found a bit weird ) but for this thread I have altered it's meaning slightly.
Right, we are on the virtual road to Herringfleet.
private road sign on frogs hole herringfleet
clupea =herring catcher= fleet ;- herringfleet
burrow for the beatles choisters= hole , choristers - frog chorus;;; frogs hole
not the bins this time, 2 x bins across the road from private road sign
Home of Disraeli's biographer and Vanwall's non starter in France in '56
Pet Shop Boy's girls on Duffy's Warwick
To the Babylonian hangers
What number is April?
The answer to line one is Brundall.
Colin Chapman failed to start the French GP in Reims '56 after crashing his Vanwall in practice and I was shown his derelict house whilst viewing a boat For Sale around the Brundall Gardens area about 10 years ago.
Robert Blake was one of Disraelis biographers and he too was from Brundall.
