Friday Foxer #90

Every Friday at 1300 hours, Tally-Ho Corner’s cleverest clogs come together to solve a ‘foxer’ handcrafted by my sadistic chum and colleague, Roman. A complete ‘defoxing’ sometimes takes several days and usually involves the little grey cells of many readers. Don’t be shy. All are welcome to participate.

To fully defox the following geofoxer, identify all twelve locations plus the theme that links them.

If you dwell in the UK*, would like to sup from an apt tea/coffee tankard while defoxing, have £15 (price includes p&p) spare, and don’t mind braving a somewhat Heath-Robinson purchase process, you can buy (while stocks last) one of the handsome mugs pictured above by following these steps:

1) Use the donation form at the bottom of this page to pay your £15.
2) Email me, tim at, your address.
3) Wait patiently for your vulpine drinking vessel to arrive (I plan to dispatch orders on Mondays and Fridays).

* Sorry, I need to do some postage cost research before offering mugs to overseas purchasers.

  1. C is Bowmore on Islay, with possibly the only round church in Scotland at the top of the road. (Bus to Port Askaig, but I think it’s only blurred out to not give away the answer…)

    • In case it’s relevant: It’s the Boeing hangar.

  2. There’s some kind of link here

    Alberto Picco was an Italian footballer and soldier, who was involved in the conquest of Monte Nero. He was awarded the Silver medal for valor by King Vittorio Emanuelle of Savoy

  3. Another possible link

    In Pictou county in Nova Scotia, there’s a place called Elgin, which is named after James Bruce, 8th Earl of Elgin, who was the guy who ordered the destruction of the Old Summer Palace at Yuanmingyuan during the second Opium War.
