To my point of view, I think it adds interest to the `Place` When John Walker described `where`
it was, even I should have `got` it, as I have stood looking down this road, to the station.

Stuartwaters... I am sorry for causing any discern but I wanted to take the easy way out without any upset to GTP by just simply giving my reasons for myself not participating any more.


If after others discussions GTP does return to its original format then I shall return to help keep it going.

Am I missing something? Did KeithG get the answer? As far as I can see, Keith posted a comment about whether posting a picture of a road to a point of interest is valid, which is a fair point and something which is open to discussion.


I think the regular players of this game need to agree the threshold if people are going to post pictures of a road to somewhere. How do you define a fair distance from the point of interest, a couple of hundred yards, a mile or two? Where do you want to draw the line?


As someone who only really has a passing interest in the game and only dip my toes in occasionally, I'm happy to leave the regular players to fine tune the rules by agreement amongst themselves.


As far as this turn is concerned, it looks as though you've conceded the turn to KeithG. How do you want to proceed?

Its the road to Tenterden Station the clues were all there and being drip fed.  Over to your KeithG :)


I didn't mean to offend you John...
I know where the road is as I have used the station quite often but I can't continue with this type of game as it is which is what I meant by over and out.
Please choose another participant...... Thanks

Just outside 10 Station Road.  I assume the castle is Bodiam - devious!

Only my opinion ... but putting up a picture of a "Road" idea seems very inadequate for such a good type of game? 


There are plenty of images of places and buildings on Google to use to guess where they are, but to just have a picture of a road is not easy to find at all especially when it could be Summer or Winter?


Let`s get back to what Guess The Place use to be which made it more interesting?

There might be a farm stall somewhere down there Castle261 but that's not the answer :) - Something far more interesting is what you're looking for.

Discovering the town would be a big clue as to what is at the end of this road.  Depending on your decision you could find a museum or a castle.

A fascinating GTP MartinR.  It took some finding and a lot learned on the way.




Next one ...


What is there of interest at the end of this road ?  (I borrowed your idea MartinR :)  )
