    Any one want to play a game, the rules are simple some one gives some clues then one has to find the building at that point, you must show you have found it by positing the google map image off the building.
    Try this.
    It is in Warwickshire England
    It moves in the wind
    A box one keeps valuables in
    Part of Her
    A heavy weight
    If you solve the clues you go next.
    This one should be easy:biggrin:

    Just FYI we had a long thread on exactly this some time back. I think it just petered out after a while. Maybe you'll get it going again.

    EDIT: oh, wait. That thread was based on a picture of each building, not a description.

    Is it the Chesterton Windmill? It fits the first 2 clues, but I'm not sure about the rest. I don't even know if it counts as a building o_O Capture.PNG

    Ah. I misunderstood your comment. Thought you had changed your mind and decided to go with pictures.

    This should be easy-peasy

    All roads lead there
    a place of amusement
    a place of suffering
    witnessed history
    now depicted on a coin

    Oh, that's okay, @Sophia, I didn't even realize that it was my turn :smile: **Here we go:

    It's located in Southern California,
    On top of a hill,
    Near a big white sign,
    Let's you see far, far away

    **My apologies for my inability to muster up a poetic bunch of clues. I hope I didn't give too much away.

    Not that . . . something very near that sign, though.

    (something more appropriate for PF :wink:)

    No . . . :smile:

    Okay, so one of my clues was "Let's you see far, far away" and then I also mentioned that it's "more appropriate for PF". Here's another thing: when I said "near" I meant that it was within the same park. Does this help?
