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.

E. ANGELS FLIGHT (narrow gauge funicular), BUNKER HILL, Los Angeles, California
ETA: World’s shortest railway
A. Hősök tere (Heroes’ Square), Budapest (link to Google Maps)
At the foot of the column which bears a statue of Archangel Gabriel.
The theme is ANGELS (not all of them Blauwe).
Not all, but H is.
H: Blue Angel at Spoorwegmuseum in Utrecht: https://email@example.com,5.1323349,3a,32.6y,200.77h,94.05t/data=!3m8!1e1!3m6!1sAF1QipOpX8zDqOvpAlaPE-JhHMRcRvZILnHJpBsHZyzc!2e10!3e11!6shttps:%2F%2Flh5.googleusercontent.com%2Fp%2FAF1QipOpX8zDqOvpAlaPE-JhHMRcRvZILnHJpBsHZyzc%3Dw203-h100-k-no-pi0-ya223.86908-ro-0-fo100!7i8704!8i4352
D: Old Master’s at the Royal Museum in Brussels, Bruegel
The Fall of the Rebel ANGELS (On the left)
F. ANGELS’ PLACE, Sydney
Artwork is Forgotten Songs by Michael Thomas Hill – comprises 180 bird cages that play a soundscape of birdsong.
J is the Angel Shopping Centre in Islington
I looked at every Mr Pretzels in the UK on Google maps, but couldn’t find it – the reason being that shopping centre is being redeveloped and its not there any more.
The annoying thing is I used to live not far from there – used to drink in The Angelic across the road so now I see it I of course recognise it.
I didn’t find it until Aergistal said angels – google maps just showed me a some scattered across the north of England!
J: ANGEL, London, Mr Pretzels.
L: ANGEL Falls 🙂
C. Beit Ha-Defus street, Jerusalem (link to Google Maps), site of Angel’s Bakery.
G: ANGEL Oak near Charleston
I – ARCHANGELSK
K – The childhood home of Janet Frame, who wrote AN ANGEL AT MY TABLE
Apart from small differences in the houses, that is amazingly like Scotland, in a way that e.g. American towns never are. I can see why the Scots felt at home over there!
I’ll just drop the last one since it’s basically done:
B – El Ángel Lima Metro station: https://goo.gl/maps/s42KRiENpBrLjZFc6
Bonus entry I guess:
Friday Foxer #111 – In other fields: the ANGEL number 111 is associated with a balanced life, cooperation, deep love, soulmate, and harmonious relationship with yourself.
