    I was desperately trying to work with "Rockhopper" :)

    Try this next one - shouldn't take too long:

    Mr Grant's Fortification

    Not Fort William - the station isn't in Scotland.

    Thanks! :)

    Have a go at this one:

    You ask Lee where he's going.

    Good luck!

    Any chance of clues as nothing guessed for several days?

    Yes - sorry, I forgot about this game! :)

    LNER services pass through this station without stopping.

    Huntingdon...if Lee’s a hunter and Don’s his mate?

    I'm afraid it isn't Huntingdon.

    It's much more Northern than that! :)

    Maybe there will be a big fight between Liverpool and Spurs fans at the Champions League final, in which case someone might say:

    I busted mascot at sporting venue!

    Ascot's an alternative reading of the clue but not the one I had in mind. Think football.

    Bescot Stadium is correct, an anagram of "a busted mascot" Your turn.

    Sounds like juicy pickings - but is it too far Northern for these?

    The obvious guess is Berrylands but that wouldn't explain the Northern bit.

    Not Berrylands but on the right lines. Think north of the M62.
