    Arrow Mornington Sevens

    Looks like we are fresh out of Red buttons. That's a bit awkard.

    If you choose the red route to get here, the unpleasant truth is you now have to contribute to the discussion. Before any further choice on your part. See post #2 for details:

    That leaves us with no choice but to click on the"Blue Button" and remain in blissful ignorance.

    I was hoping we might not get to this point.

    Blitz rules enforced.

    Perhaps if OB.. could have a rummage in the attic, for the unpublished (handwritten) rules, we can get down to brass tacks. Any BBC inside information from broadcasts would be welcome.

    I will start with a Landmark this time:

    Battersea Power Station

    (serving Tate Modern from Autumn 2021) the "3 pin plug" as they called it throughout the War
    Bonus point if anyone has the Cockney slang for this particular Landmark in pre Pink Floyd days.

    What on earth is going on over there in Blighty? All completely bonkers by the sounds of things.

    It’s cabin fever, mate.

    I will play Holborn station for you, since you clearly don’t know the rules.

    I'll play one location which (as well as the usual Cockfosters) always makes me smile....the fantastically named Mudchute

    I appreciate it's on the DLR which may invoke some rule but it cheered me up as I "passed through it" on the way to see the Cutty Sark.

    While we're on it - sad news about Tim Brooke-Taylor of ISIHAC, erstwhile Goody and co-writer of the possibly the best sketch ever - The Four Yorkshire men sketch.

    Cardboard box?

    Chesham tube station.

    While British Museum no longer qualifies as an Underground station, (as pointed out in OB..’s linked article) you could slip it in as a landmark. But only if you know which bank has built a branch above the old station.
    A few other famous landmarks are allowed at a pinch.

    • Big Ben. Silent sentinel that it has become.
    • Tower Bridge
    • The London Eye
    • The Tower of London
    • The Gherkin
    • Buckingham Palace
    • St Paul's Cathedral
    • Palace of Westminster
    • The Shard
    • Westminster Abbey
