wheres this cairn(?)
by some remarkable detective work i think no4 is the grasmere gingerbread shop 😀
but i actually did do a bit of detective work and found the pic for no5 on a chinese website. its st oswalds church grasmere where wordsworth is buried.
any knowledge of the others?
EDIT: ive found that the money tree is at a gate at the top of aira force national trust car park, and the waterfall is aira force waterfall from the lower viewing platform 🙂Posted 6 months ago
got those last ones from the walk on this web page, so would that give any clues as to the last couple of pics i cant get, the copper stove and long log with coins? just wondered if hed have done the same walk. i saw that wordsworths dove cottage may be near so didnt know if the stove would be in there, but google images doesnt show it anywhere.
any ideas peeps?
thanksPosted 6 months agowhitestoneMember
My guess would be somewhere along the Glaramara ridge, not sure if it’s Glaramara itself – that’s one of the few Lakeland tops I’ve not been on – as there’s a lot of small summits along there.
Looked at the shot mentioned on the link and I think the shot in question is from slightly further south along the ridge from the summit as Martcrag Moor (the vague hump in front of Pike o’ Stickle) has an ever so slightly different background, you can see further along Langdale. Also the two hills on the skyline immediately left of the top stone on the cairn are aligned whereas in the shot taken from the summit the nearer hill is to the left.Posted 5 months ago
ive answered with that link whitestone, and its probably right as he said “ok what about this one then” and linking to that second pic again ^^^. this one…..
must admit i thought they were the same place, but obviously not 😀
any ideas? would it be the next point along or summats?
thank you kindlyPosted 5 months ago
Ha, I think he was lost in the mist 🙂
If not Allen Crags then it must be the other bit that Whitestone mentioned above. I’d say it was taken marginally further south than the first one and slightly higher. Hard to say in the mist though. I think it all counts as Glaramara 😉Posted 5 months ago
hes actually titled this set of pictures as from being ‘down south’, and includes pics of basingstoke canal, ‘kingfisher on the quay’ which a quick google shows is in mythchett, camberley, plus pics with beefeaters etc so a trip down the big smoke it looks like.
couple of pretty impossible ones but you never know……
this one, ok its just pitch black but he accompanied it by saying that he “blagged” my way in with my flask, (They wanted to confiscate it ). I was given permission to take 1 photo only, (Nobody else was). The bloody flash wouldn’t work…..”
an educated guess would be the crown jewels or summats you reckon? where else might he be banned from taking a hipflask in and only taking one pic?
kudos points for anyone who gets those last two…..Posted 4 months ago
Dark one will be somewhere in Windsor Castle as well, the text talks about restoration work completed in November 1997 following the fire five years earlier – st george’s chapel or the state rooms, where photography is not normally allowed.
The other one is probably the gents there. The order of uploads on his photo sharing page will tell you.Posted 4 months ago
bluddy hell you guys are amazing!! id never have known! i even thought of not posting it and just saying ‘a black picture’ plus his message. good job i didnt 🙂
cant quite read that, but i assume youre both seeing the same thing, i can just make out a plaque to do with the 50th anniversary of the queens wedding. i cant make out anything do do with restoration work, is that right at the top where its a bit darker?
the toilet one…… its sandwiched between a pic of him stood with a beefeater (is that the castle or the tower?) and then a shop called ‘jersey pearl’ in windsor. windsor castle bogs do we think?
and good work with the bull!
thanks again, excellent work!Posted 4 months ago
