Where am I?

Using the following clues (the map above is purely decorative) in combination with Street View and tools such as MAPfrappe, work out my location.

Although Roman, THC’s chief puzzlewright, would be interested to know how long it takes you to solve this solo foxer, he’d rather you didn’t put spoilers or solutions in the comments.

Wembley Stadium could seat the entire population of the city I’m in today. Said city is slightly closer to a neighbouring country’s capital than its own, and has a name that anagramises as ‘Zap local rivals’. Spain boasts more than twice as many provinces as the country I’m in (said country’s Wikipedia page includes photos of a gold mine, rock art, and a polo player). Talking of provinces, the one you’re searching for has seven neighbours and no green on its flag.  You’ll find me on a road that shares a name with a US state. 1260 feet from an unusual bridge, I’m closer to a theatre than I am to a police station, and closer to a bus station than a casino. Equilatitudinous with a river that shares a name with a British seaside town and transport aircraft, I’m equilongitudinous with an island that inspired a 1905 novel.

You’re probably in the right place if you can see…

  • Long shadows
  • Red lampposts
  • Yellow kerbs
  • Red and white crossbars
  • A big bird’s nest
  • A white Toyota Hilux
  • A delta-winged aircraft
  • The word “AXION”

I’m not in Pont-à-Mousson.

(Last week I was here)
