Tintagel abbey

Pretty!

Hans May 22 2006 04:11 AM

Re: Where In The World 17
 
Pretty indeed but whether it is Tintern Abbey I'm not sure :) Let AnneMarie answer Edi first before we start guessing more...

AnnMarie May 22 2006 05:23 AM

Re: Where In The World 17
 
No, it's not Tintagel

Hans May 22 2006 06:47 AM

Re: Where In The World 17
 
This won't be solved by guessing outright, so it's question time :)

AnneMarie...

is it in England, Wales or Scotland?

AnnMarie May 22 2006 08:30 AM

Re: Where In The World 17
 
England.... now....

Hans May 22 2006 08:45 AM

Re: Where In The World 17
 
Argh... that isn't making things real easy :D

Is it Kelso Abbey?

AnnMarie May 22 2006 09:08 AM

Re: Where In The World 17
 
No it isn't Kelso either

I will take either of two answers as correct

Re: Where In The World 17
 
Much Wenlock (unlikely I know)

Hans May 22 2006 09:32 AM

Re: Where In The World 17
 
Hmmm....

Abbey or Castle?

half castle, half religious, but not an abby

Re: Where In The World 17
 
No Abbey? Drat, hoped it was Melrose Abbey :)

Since you are so interested a fan of Robin, has it anything to to with him or Sherwood?

Nope

That would have been this one....WAY too easy!http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v2...n/df73e042.jpg

Re: Where In The World 17
 
Next hint... 3 kings are burried here.

Mary May 24 2006 06:13 AM

Re: Where In The World 17
 
Sudeley Castle?

AnnMarie May 24 2006 08:50 AM

Re: Where In The World 17
 
Nope, not Sudeley

Kath May 24 2006 09:08 AM

Re: Where In The World 17
 
When you say "england... now..." would that make it near the welsh or scottish borders?

This is proving to be rather tricky!

Hans May 24 2006 09:12 AM

Re: Where In The World 17
 
That's what I assumed Kath, but still not finding it :)

AnnMarie May 24 2006 11:37 AM

Re: Where In The World 17
 
AT least two of the three kings buried there were Scots.

Wales, FYI, is at the other side of the Island entirely.

AnnMarie May 24 2006 11:47 AM

Does this help?

But I should have got it a lot sooner - the NAME of your original JPEG includes the phrase "TynemouthPriory", which is really a bit of a giveaway...

Hans May 24 2006 01:07 PM

Re: Where In The World 17
 
LOL

and to know I always meticulously change the name of my puzzlepictures :roll: I never even thought to look at the original data :D

Well, at least I figured out which it was before spotting the Very Big Clue! Still, that was a tough one. I was fairly sure it'd be in Northumbria based on the earlier clues, but a whole county's a much harder place to search than just its coastline.

Mind you, I had a good time working my way through the National Trust/English Heritage webpages, trying to figure it out. :good:

AnnMarie May 24 2006 03:40 PM

Re: Where In The World 17
 
I honestly was waiting for someone to notice the file name! Good job, Kath! I deliberately made sure the second picture had the Coast Guard station in it!


NEXT!!

Lily May 24 2006 04:33 PM

Re: Where In The World 17
 
How fantastic to be able to tour the country and find a ruined castle around a corner!. There's plenty of different views in New Zealand, all natural ones as we are so small with such a variety of scenery

*Throws huuuuuge massive temper tantrum*
Wish I had seen this sooner!!!

I live like 30 minutes from Tynemouth Priory and visit regular!

*Slumps off in a huff*

Oooh, love the new avatar Plat, can't wait til Maelin reveals the whole pic!

*Bouncy bouncy* TYTY
More than worth the wait :D

Hans May 25 2006 05:24 AM

Re: Where In The World 17
 
Beautiful indeed :nod:

Kath May 25 2006 05:55 AM

Re: Where In The World 17
 
Oh yes. Is that a green dragon snoozing in the background?

Platinum May 25 2006 07:29 AM

Re: Where In The World 17
 
Yuppers!
*Bounces*

Admittedly I tinkered a little to get all three in. The original is SO perfect tho!
