  2. maybe a bit close to your radius limit but there are a lot of caches along the Kennet and Avon canal in Newbury area
  3. Thanks: Sticking with football. On Boxing Day 1999, which Premier League team was the first in PL history to field a starting eleven with no British players?

  13. DING! ... but you knew that of course ! ....what might have been..... :
  14. Now that I've googled, I see my error... oops. Anyway, happy to accept the Ding, and changing tack completely.... Who invented Cats Eyes?
  15. This was in a quiz I did a couple of weeks ago - I think the answer given was 38 so I'll go with that
