Where am I?

Using the following clues (the map above is purely decorative) in combination with Street View, 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 I’m in an EU country that has a female president and a peaky national anthem. The country didn’t participate in this year’s Eurovision Song Contest, operates UH-60 Black Hawks, and remembers miners killed in accidents on a day in August. The nearest national park is about ten miles NE of my location, the nearest nuclear power station about thirty five miles SSW. A thirty minute drive from a photogenic castle, I’m in a town where coal is mined and fish paste is made.

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

  • Cut flowers
  • A rollator
  • A police car
  • A bouncy giraffe
  • A pharmacy
  • A maypole
  • A caravan
  • A church that was badly damaged by a bomb in March, 1945
  • Yogi Bear?
  • The word ‘PUMA’
  • The words ‘Fast CARS’

  1. Took me maybe 40 minutes or so. It’s amusing how much easier it is when it’s your own country (which this was not, but others have been). Also, these make me feel my age, in that I want a paper map and a compass. Even after a lifetime of using computers, they feel awkward and difficult.
