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 a stone’s throw from a Morris Minor convertible. I’m in an English village with a two-word name and an 007 connection. Said name sounds like a character in a 1930s crime novel. The village is in a county that has a flag free of weapons, animals, the colour blue, and the colour green. The county is represented by eight MPs all of whom are Tories. The village’s current MP is an ex-soldier and journalist. He owns a grand Grade I listed house approximately 12.75 miles from my location. The road I’m on is a 170m-long cul-de-sac that runs east-west. The nearest National Trust car park is around 450m away. Most of the people who use it make for the coast after parking their vehicles.

You are probably in the right place if you can see…

  • Rain-dampened tarmac
  • Buddleias
  • Fuchsias
  • An inanimate cat
  • A yellow skip
  • Ladders
  • No road markings
  • No people
  • A skeleton?
  • The words “I am a Cider Drinker”

  1. Inanimate cat ahoy!
    Took a little longer than the previous one (where I benefitted considerably from some local knowledge), but about 20 minutes all told.
