    Maybe, given it went in a couple of hours I suppose it was obvious enough. But there is a selection effect, whereby only the better players can dominate the game. If you want new people to join in then regularly making things too easy is a good idea in my opinion.

    Yes, but MoN's point was that the presence of a canal boat in the picture was clue enough to allow for some sensible hunting. I was suggesting that it still leaves an area too large to be worth investigating.

    Good point about the canal narrows it down, except there are about 50 miles of canal in London...

    Old was the entrance to a horse hospital/stables, hence the modern name. The canal's were powered by horse power and this tunnel entrance allowed the horses to walk straight in off the towpath.

    It basically next to Camden Market.

    Blimey, you lot are quiet. This is reasonably central...

    Next door to the tag is a food market, though I'd avoid the lasagne...

    You don't need bright lights. And it's very antisocial to have a superbright blinky rear light.

    I get dozy around then and my mind starts to suggest just closing your eyes for a second... Fuck off mind, are you trying to get me killed?
