Friday Foxer #126

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.

  1. Here’s a wild punt on a link but – statues of women? Boudicca is there behind the kiosk in Westminster and is you spin around in Google Maps in Venice you’l see a sculpture of Alison Lapper (who had previously been on the fourth plinth in Trafalgar Square, which is a bit far away from Big Ben for Lapper herself to be a link)

  2. B – I can´t find the museum, but I found the poster:


    It could be either a reference to the Boer War, or teh Spanish-American Wa.

    Hope that helps.

  3. K – Delhi Railway Museum
    The blurred text reads
    built 1902

    The link appears to be 1902

    The Great Orme Tramway was opened in 1902, and Serpollet won at the Bexhill trials that year too

  4. Even knowing that the indefatigable Corner Puzzle Crew must already have solved most of the nogging numbers, I always enjoy taking a look at Roman’s puzzles. The published number would surely fill a book – has any thought been given to putting these in book form, with part of the proceeds perhaps supporting the site?

    • A book is unlikely, but Roman and I are working on a foxer-related project at the moment. If it’s not available by the end of the summer I’ll be disappointed.

  5. I – maybe one of the many tors in Dartmoor?

    The Hound of the Baskervilles published in 1902 was set there. The Fox Tor would’ve been perfect but there’s no Google Maps photo of it.

    Also, pro tip: if you don’t see the latest comments on the site just add an interrogation mark and some random text at the end of the link, for example:
