Title: Where the Heck Am I
Post by: Yorkie on December 27, 2008, 11:05:29 AM
Hope this is okay to post.

Basically I give you a cryptic clue and you have to guess where it is in the British Isles. Please feel free to add your own little gems.

Okay an easy one I think to start off with:

If it was a mythical giant worm, then the Lambton Worm would be it and the place would be Penshaw near Chester-le Street.

Title: Re: Where the Heck Am I
Post by: HPsauce on December 29, 2008, 10:14:20 AM
It was the more traditional human-shaped giant.
Clue: There was a giant animal involved as well (NOT a dragon) that also met it's end at the same time and place.

Sorry, not that one, but here's another clue: This "ending" was more self-inflicted.

The Giants name was Bell and he rode a sorrel horse, he decided to make three giant leaps the last one killing him.

Excellent research, how did you find that out? And Where the Heck Am I?
(PS his name was Bel and he started at Mountsorrel)
Title: Re: Where the Heck Am I
Post by: camallison on December 29, 2008, 01:13:57 PM
The Giants name was Bell and he rode a sorrel horse, he decided to make three giant leaps the last one killing him.

Just to fill in the detail:

Mountsorrel where, according to legend, a giant named Bel vowed to reach Leicester in three leaps, he mounted his sorrel stead in Mountsorrel, leaped as far as Wanlip (pronounced one leap) leaped again to Birstall, so called because the horse and saddle burst apon the impact .He just managed to leap a third time, but the horse and rider dropped dead a mile and a half short of Leicester and were buried in a place named Belgrave. So you are in Belgrave.

Title: Re: Where the Heck Am I
Post by: HPsauce on December 29, 2008, 04:08:31 PM
Not Belgrave (that's the grave, obviously).
There are minor variations on the story so I guess you win for knowing it in detail.
According to the locals in Birstall that's where he (and Sorrel) died, attempting the 3rd leap.

Yes, tis Heathrow.

There may be a bevvy or two afterwards of Wickwar Station Porter.

Brock is part of the answer.

The ONLY Brock I know is Brock Bottoms in Lancashire  but the  Wickwar Station Porter is from Gloucestershire   ...  and  where the Frenchman comes in I've no idea, except that blaireau is badger in French  !!!!    now is there a place called Blaireau in Gloucester  ?? ..back to the drawing board  :'(

Kate, Ness Point is one of our great landmarks, but when you go there, there's nothing there apart from a signpost marking the spot.  It should be a big tourist attraction, and a great selling point for the town of Lowestoft, but sadly it's not.  Before the signpost was erected, you could walk past it and not know that you were at the most easterly point of the British mainland.

Peeling  (I call it that too !)   peelers, policeMEN    ?    There is a Robert Peel statue in Parliament Square, London  (one in Bury too !)  but can't see the a connection with that   :'(     I'm swiftly losing my Joie de Vivre    ;D

Scrambled eggs is correct.

Thinking cap back on, but if this rapper is one of those dreadful pop-person type rappers, then I am lost.

Post by: scottiesmum on January 16, 2009, 10:27:18 PM
No,  No-one near 'geographically' yet   but Nottingham could give a clue !! 

You are all doing 'fine work'   -  look at the original clue  .... It may not tie your shoe, but it should give you a clue !

Another bit of help  ..... 

A dream county that could contain a typo  !! 



Title: Re: Where the Heck Am I
Post by: tuftedduck on January 17, 2009, 07:30:37 AM
Hmm  :hmm:

Nottingham takes us to lace making and/or tatting, could the dream county be Bedfordshire ?
Get a clue might be to cotton on to something...........and you can make lace with cotton

Are we at Cotton End ?
Title: Re: Where the Heck Am I
Post by: scottiesmum on January 17, 2009, 08:31:28 AM
Ooooooooooo  TD   you are getting warm   ... but don't cotton on to anything  !!     not Bedfordshire     .. think    - dream county that could contain a typo  !! 

OK   .... another bit of help  .....     bees give heavy harvest  ......

I have a feeling Yorkie, Chrissie or Kitz might know this  ...................and that's another clue  !!!!   ;)
Title: Re: Where the Heck Am I
Post by: tuftedduck on January 17, 2009, 08:48:40 AM
An important traditional industry in a little Devon town was lacemaking, and all these bees making honey that weighs lots, and Devon could be a divan with a typo..........can't think where some of the more elegant and graceful of the Kitizens come into it, but...................are we at Honiton.

 ;D

He's at it again .... easy   :o  ;D

well so far   ....   staunch  ... can be to stop the flow  ...  so are we near water ?        staunch can also mean of strong construction,  is it a Dam perhaps  ?   

steady    ????    perhaps a boat/ship term   ??      .. water keeps coming to mind  ? :'( :'(      or is my mind wandering again  ;D

Yes, we are in Coverdale.

Title: Re: Where the Heck Am I
Post by: camallison on February 10, 2009, 02:40:04 PM
I lived near Whitby as a child and it was obviously of great interest to a 14 year-old avid reader!!!!

Copied from an obscure website for your enjoyment:

What is the connection between Whitby and Dracula? First of all, Whitby figures quite centrally in a significant section of the novel Dracula (Chapters 6-8). It is where the Russian ship "Demeter" comes ashore and is the location of the first encounters between Dracula and Lucy. Today, there are many points of interest for the Dracula enthusiast in Whitby.

One of the highlights is the Bram Stoker Memorial seat. It was the view from this spot that inspired Stoker's Whitby scenes. One can look straight across the harbor and can see the ruins of the Abbey, the Church, and the stone steps. And just to the left is the cliff where the "Demeter" came ashore. There is an inscription on the bench which reads as follows: "The view from this spot inspired Bram Stoker (1847-1912) to use Whitby as the setting of part of his world-famous novel DRACULA. This seat was erected by Scarborough Borough Council and the Dracula Society to mark the 68th Anniversary of Stoker's death - April 20th 1980".

The most prominent landmark in Whitby is the ruin of Whitby Abbey, which was sacked by the Danes. As Stoker writes, "It is a most noble ruin, of immense size, and full of beautiful and romantic bits.... Between it and the town there is another church, the parish one, round which is a big graveyard, all full of tombstones".

It was at Whitby that Stoker "discovered" the name "Dracula." While vacationing there in the summer of 1890, just months after he began writing his vampire novel, he visited the local library and borrowed a book entitled An Account of the Principalities of Wallachia and Moldavia (1820) by William Wilkinson. He took several notes from it (now part of his papers housed at the Rosenbach Museum in Philadelphia.) Wilkinson's book includes a short section on a "voivode Dracula" who fought against the Turks. Though the information was sketchy, one item attracted Stoker's attention (he copied it verbatim into his notes): a footnote that "Dracula in the Wallachian language means Devil." Stoker decided to change the name of his vampire Count from "Wampyr" to "Dracula". An inspired decision!

Sorry I was absent yesterday, but my brain cell is refreshed and firing again today.

Having consulted my thesaurus, there are about three million synonyms for 'beat'...

South and west of Nelson is Chester, and 'beat' could be 'win', so I want to say Winchester, but I don't see any meat connection. :(

Whipsnade :no:

I am intrigued by unkyUb's use of the past tense in the original clue, so I thought of historical figures, female, who had especial references to her hair.

Lady  Godiva rode through the streets of Coventry wearing nothing but her long hair, and on a high horse.

Are we at Coventry ?  :-\

Hmm.. deuterium is used in nuclear fusion, and is obtained from heavy water.

It's also used as a moderator ( :) ) in nuclear reactors to produce plutonium.

All of which is very educational but not getting me anywhere. I would put on my thinking cap, but I can't remember where I left it.

Kitz   you are very close but need to use  'to joke' in Dutch and then fit a  foyer  suffix on the end  !

>>> the correct derivation of the suffix Kil

Did you mean 'prefix'?

This one seems possible:

"Basically Kil means church, so for example Kildare (Cill Dara in modern Irish), originally derived from Cell Dara in Old Irish, meaning "Church of the Oak".
Title: Re: Where the Heck Am I
Post by: tuftedduck on April 25, 2009, 06:49:55 AM
Yes, sorry, meant prefix........ :-[

Good explanation............the additional bit I was looking foe is that "Kil" is a gaelic/erse pronunciation of "cell" meaning a monk's cell................."Kil" marks where a christian church of either denomination was built on the site of an old monk's cell.
