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.

Last week’s hive foxer theme: carpets (defoxed by alison and Electric Dragon)
beater (Zwack23, Colonel_K)
shark (Zwack23, alison)
sierpinski (Electric Dragon)
I: Dockers monument in LIMERICK
D: I think it’s a copy of Michelangelo’s David in the Appian Way shops in Caesar’s Palace, Las Vegas
yep, it’s here: https://email@example.com,-115.1755883,3a,75y,1.74h,113.58t/data=!3m8!1e1!3m6!1sAF1QipM7z9_WZ4At_wwUbt8-4GmIF6MUDjRdSCNNirlS!2e10!3e11!6shttps:%2F%2Flh5.googleusercontent.com%2Fp%2FAF1QipM7z9_WZ4At_wwUbt8-4GmIF6MUDjRdSCNNirlS%3Dw203-h100-k-no-pi-0-ya336.13623-ro-0-fo100!7i5376!8i2688
K: There are too many Telefonica, Farmacias Dr Ahorro and Bonafide in Buenos Aries…
ALBERTI cipher: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alberti_cipher
I think we’re here (Larrea/Alberti and Rivadavia) but timeshifted:
E: Moorabbin Museum, Australia, just finding the spot.
Just to the right of here:
Here’s the exact image
And we’re looking at the BEAUFORT.
C is the Purple People Bridge over the Ohio River, I think – it helpfully says ‘Newport’ in the shadows!
H looks like one of the huts at Bletchley Park – I’ll see if I can find the exact image
Hut 6 at Bletchley Park
B – Leeds Uni campus… sculpture is called “a Sign for Art”
‘A Sign For Art, the official name for the sculpture fondly called the ‘Wavy Bacon’ by many on campus, was inspired by the motion made across the forehead of a deaf-blind person to communicate the making of art’
K: appears to be the Nagasaki atomic bomb museum, showing part of the remains of the Urakami cathedral. can’t find the exact picture yet
I think the theme is CIPHERS.
The Enigma machine
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Type_B_Cipher_Machine – codenamed Purple
So I is presumably looking at the River Shannon
P.S. I didn’t see the wednesday foxer, i’ll likely have a look later or over the weekend.
E: the cockpit is a Bristol Beaufort Mk V https://www.aarg.com.au/dap-beaufort.html
A. Transformers scrap sculptures by Danilo Baletic, on display at the Arnold Schwarzenegger museum in Thal, Austria.
K: Rivadavia/Alberti/Larrea crossroads, Buenos Aires. Imagery is from Dec 2016
F – SHUGBOROUGH inscription, unsolved cipher: https://goo.gl/maps/itDnraFdzE811Vuy7
G – BEALE Memorial Clock Tower: https://goo.gl/maps/qLj3FoR22JifcTT28
L – The Settlers on PLAYFAIR street: https://goo.gl/maps/dLCHEMDE5DQZYDc58
