Unlike the formidable Friday foxers, the Monday kind are designed with lone truth sleuths in mind. Roman, my Chief Foxer Setter, assures me the following brainteaser can be solved single-handedly. Crow all you like in the comments section, but please don’t spoil the puzzle for others by sharing solutions or dropping hints.
“Where am I?”
Using the following clues (the map above is purely decorative) in combination with Street View, Wikipedia, and other tools, work out my location. The answer will appear under next Monday’s solo foxer.
I’m a stone’s throw from a type of house that’s vulnerable to thrown stones. I can see a white van with a rose decal adorning its side. I’m about two miles from a lighthouse designed by a 19th Century scientist whose most famous invention is still widely used today. Less than three miles away is a star fort. I’m a twelve minute drive from a museum devoted to an actress. I’m on a road named after an antipodean artist, in a village that shares a name with a British city. That village is in a country that has a repdigit for a calling code. The geographical centre of the country lies to the ESE and is approximately 270 miles away. Of the US states I share latitude with, four begin with the same letter. I share longitude with two capital cities. I’m not in Pont-à-Mousson.
(Last week I was here)
That does look a nice place.
That took me a fair bit longer to find than the last couple of solo foxers! Albeit I would have found it far faster if I had been just a bit more thorough when checking one particular clue…
I got nowhere on this yesterday, but today have discovered that google maps does ‘as the crow flies’ distances which helped enormously as I was looking about 40 miles away.
Ooh, there it is!
This one was a toughie, but finally ended beautifully.
