Birmingham & Wolves Landmark Challenge 2015

This is the 21st year of the challenge so for this year it has been subtly modified. All the clues are in line with the theme "Around The World". The answer to each clue is a place, rather than a particular building or site. Each of these place names is also the name of a more famous place elsewhere in the world. All you have to do is identify the place and photograph your bike there as proof of visit. You can choose the town sign or any shop etc that contains the place name.

The Rules:
  1. Work out the location of the "Landmark" from the given clue and grid reference.
  2. The good bit. Ride your Triumph to the location and simply photograph your pride and joy there as proof of achievement.
  3. Sent your entry before the end of the year comprising photographs, cheque for £5.00 payable to 'Bham and Wolves TOMCC', and an SSAE to:
    Landmark Challenge, 2 Waterworks House, Cresswell Lane, Cresswell, STOKE-ON-TRENT, ST11 9RE.
