Where's This

Postby whitevanman » Tue Apr 29, 2008 7:21 pm

While we're trying to figure TD's puzzle out, have a little break and try to work out were this is.
No cutting or cropping, a straight shot and stood firmly on terra firma when taking it.

Yeah definitely Old Church Warsop .... the cemetary would probably be a bit further up left.

Yep I agree.

The photo is taken from Old Church Warsop (as seen in the foreground), with the new houses with grey roofs in the middle, and then into Warsop around the Nethercross/Burns area.

You're all right to a degree, taken from top of Cuckney Hill. The foreground is Coggins Lane, the grey roofed houses are the new ones on Barn Owl Close, the "estate " houses at the back being the Nethercross and Southgate Roads area.

I'll have a look round for one a bit harder :lol:

I was thinking Hammerwater Drive area because there is a lot of foliage in the foreground which could be sookholme way. there also appears to be some new build houses to the right of the picture which may be Blackberry Way.

The big white house though at the top left is confusing me... perhaps the one on Dawny Hill?

By the style of the houses, I might have said it's the Hammerwater and Sookholme area but that white building in the top left isn't something I recognise.

I don't think that's the Windmill though, otherwise I think you'd be able to see the railway that runs across the top of Sherwood Street. :?

I knew i couldn't fool you lot :lol:

Taken from the top of Warsop tip, the first row of houses is indeed the backs of Sookholme Drive, a couple of dormer houses to the right on Blackberry Way.
The first row of the second lot of houses is the rear of Oakfield Ave ( :quickwave: ), with Robin Hood estate beyond

The white house is the ex water board house up near Bowrings on Forest road

Hammerwater Drive area taken from somewhere on the hills and holes? Half way up on the left, is that the big barn at the bottom of Blakely Lane and the white house the one at the top of the Edwinstowe Road before you get to Bowrings?

I've just enlarged it and in front of that barn on the left you can see the railway bridge that you go under as you leave Warsop.

Mind you, really blown up, and panning across to the top right I can see a pair of railway lines bending away to the right through a cutting so now I'm not sure.
I wish I was fishing
