Wrong country I'm afraid Grantus plus the nearest motorway is about 80 miles away! Here's a clue its on the border of the Snowdonia National Park...

Is it Llanberis?

Matthew Ball said...

I give up. I haven't been in Wales for years.

Ah, hold on. You are somewhere near Betws-y-coed, your old stomping (and sheep shagging) grounds.

Matthew Ball said...

Grantus, Are you ok? Have you got something caught in your throat?

EC - Getting closer with Betws...

before we go any further I'd like to find out is "a free walnut whip" is some sort of euphemism?

I quote from the wiki article: Walnut Whip is slang for Trip (acid / ecstasy).

Last try, then.

It's somewhere on the B4407 or B4406.

Spot on EC the B4406 south of Cwm Penmachno. It was a great ride. I grew up in Penmachno. I'll stick the WW in the post.

That's where you grew up? Nice.

No surprise you have difficulties getting to know Linlithgow; it must seem like a big city to you.

Should we have a 'most where am I quizzes answered' trophy?
