Sorry - been away again - yes , Yes Cheddar Gorge, Somerset. Caves surrounding the gorge were occupied during the last phase of the Ice Age. Cheddar Cheese is still made and sold there. You are in an ancient wool town which once had a castle and a cross made famous in a children's nursery rhyme. The town also gives it's name to a cake containing currants, spices and mixed peel. Where are you now?

You clever people. Yes Banbury. Oxfordshire. The original Banbury Cross ('Ride a cock horse to bambury Cross') was destroyed in 1602. The spiced Banbury Cakes were first produced eight years later in a bakehouse in Parsons Street.

Yes - Moscow! well done - lovely place. It's a place to see the stars! a capital place, but not in the centre. a large former form of transport nearby, and a chance to play the children's game I-spy! Jacqui
