Jacquie, I would never have got that, guess it is the Cutty Sark Pilgrim Father please add another one now, I think all the previous ones have been solved (btw if you are an idiot you are in good company, I have often heard that word used about me) ;-)))

O.K. Here's another one. Elegant Regency houses grace this inland spa town noted for it's music festival, ladies' college and racecourse. Where are you now?

OK here's one from my own knowledge. A huge promenade and extensive grassy banks, a statue of a famous man who played bowls quite close before doing his duty, a lighthouse on dry land? - it served it's days on the Eddystone Rock. A view that is the envy of the world - Sound - but there is no noise. Where am I? It was Cheltenham.Gloucestershire. The saline springs which made the town a fashionable watering place were discovered in 1716. It's ladies' college is one of the leading public schools for girls, and the Cheltenham Music Festival has become an annual event. Highlight of the local racing calendar is the Cheltenham Gold Cup, run every March. Karen . Further to your understanding that it should be personal efforts I do always declare the source of my information - whether it be a book or news papers - and even the odd joke that I input.

Pilgrim Father, I think you are in Plymouth, :-)) Karen, mine have been odd facts that have come from my studies. I can't quote a source, but if any one questions any of my clues I would, hopefully, be able to substantiate them. This place is the birth place of Rupert the Bear and was where Thomas Becket was murdered Dee x

Hi Caz, Gwynne got Canterbury for the Thomas Becket/ Rupert one. Pocahontas was somewhere different ;-)) Linda, crocks brings to mind Stoke on Trent, but not sure if that fits the other two clues ;-))
