Right then, as it would appear that as the cracking Photo Location Game has run it's course I feel i should take it upon myself to try another game.
In this one you are merely required to post a photo of something famous/particular/exclusive to your home town that someone else should be able to recognise or locate via Google Earth or image search.
Just to get the ball rolling-

The trick is to see what the picture is and search Google images in the area the poster is from.

Turvey

Stoney871

Stoney871

The beacon at the eastern end of Plymouth Breakwater?

 

If correct, I declare open floor. :)

Stoney871
Correct.
Dig out.
jeebowhite

Technically that was only the town name of the canon clive, but it was a sod of a request I made! :p

 

For reference, the old canon at hartlepool headlands is in fact the Sebastapool Canon :)

Stoney871
I did find the location though didn't I ? ;)
Maybe I should have been a detective :d
