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.

Today you’ll find me in a ceremonial county that contains four parliamentary constituencies, three of which returned Conservative MPs at the last general election. There’s a photo of a cricket pavilion and a former colliery on the county’s Wikipedia page. In a village with a memorable two-word name (both words can be found in an English dictionary), I’m roughly 1800m from the remains of a fort and about 4000 feet from a crime scene. The nearest railway station is to the SE. Its name begins with a B. The nearest ‘A’ road has a centred tetrahedral number. A three minute stroll away, the closest holiday accommodation is a 3-bedroom cottage owned by the National Trust.

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

  • A barn owl
  • At least five curlews
  • A bus stop
  • An ash tree with a reduced crown
  • An electric vehicle charging point
  • A ranger’s van
  • Signs of autumn
  • The words “landscape of voices”
