NO sorry Declan. Wrong. The correct answer has just been posted on the old thred by Scabby Doug: it was Strontian, the place where Strontium was discovered, on the west coast of Scotland. You haven't got the theme of the quiz yet, or you'ld have known the answer couldnt be anything to do with Yorkshire, but congratulations for getting to Strontium: it wasa complex question! Thanks for participating:still a few to go.

Recap time. Most are in now,very pleased to see as I put in some difficult ones. Correct answersso far: (1) (Streets of) London; (2) Isleof Wight (Three Drunken maidens); (3) Dodman (Spanish ladies); (6) (Mist bells of) Swansea or (Bells of) Aberdovey; (7) (Men of) Harlech; (8) Leaving of) Liverpool; (10) Glasgow(belongs to me); (11) Campbelltown och; (12) Strontian (Crack was 90); (13) The Minch (Mingulay Boat Song); (14) (Great Silkie of) Sule Skerry; (15) Scapa Flow (Royal Oak); (16) (Farewell to) Tarwathie; (18) Lindisfarne (Fog on the Tyne); (20) Grimsby (three score and ten); (21) (Cruising Round) Yarmouth. To help you finish some hard ones, 23 is the only one that is not a musical clue ( though 24 is so old we dont really know if its a song or a poem). The song in (22) is indeed "The Foggy Dew" but that's not the answer. (9) Should appeal to those who are up on the more romantic and rebellious aspects of Scottish history. And finally, can any kind and clever person connect this to part one with a clickie thing.

Well I meant Scapa Flow to be the answer but I'mvery willing to entertain other answers...Nigel's Bells of Aberdovey fitted as well as Swansea did. But somehow I dont think Ystrad Mynach could fit my clue....do explain.

greg, I think Gareth meant he had just left his local pub (hence the difficulty of ascertaining his meaning?!) which is called the "Royal Oak", but which is located in a place called Ystrad Mynach, not in Scapa Flow, on this occasion.

Would that be accurate, Gareth butty? *grin*

Noreen thanks for the translation...I think Gareth was struggling to write coherently, and Iwas struggling to read coherently. I blame World Cup over excitement...dont know what his excuse is, he's not Englsh (not that I am, really. But PLEASE will someone do the last few clues, because I've got an American quiz to post, but this one's got to be finished first.

Just took the old gaily painted barge from Wheelock to Middlewich, and came back to find this fine late flurry of answers. Nigel, quite right on Scarborough and Carlisle. For the full 10 points I'ld like an explanation of the cacophonous band and 157 years musical allusion.And for a free pint I'ld like the famous folkloriston Scarborough Fair. Nreen, spot on with Thames ( extra bonus for archaic spelling) and Aldeburgh ( I was partularly pleased with my bachelors singing about a bachelor clue). To help bring this ordeal to an end, a few hints. First, if you havent spotted the overall theme, get some admiraly charts, or failing that a road book. For (4) think English country dance music (though some includng me might dispute the English). For (5), extend yourthoughts to a very holy city and a very large island off Africa. My clue for (17) is misleading, for which I apolgise. Put it in the plural" fiddlers know where these grow"...I was thinking of the old(singular) name of this very very well-known tune, which is always referred to in the plural nowadays. For (23). remember this is is a non-musical clue, and think what you would obviously be feeling if you'd been horrified. And for (24), just think what sort of things are very old (in England, at least) and very bloody. And now, finish it quick! I want to achieve closure and move on.

Boscastle Breakdown it is, title of a tune, and also of an influential album. And if you're doing a bit of computer searching backup. I'm sure typing in Holy City will show you aplace, that isnt Mecca, that might remind you of a famous cabin boy song. Mecca's only holy to one religion...hint hint.

Heartfelt apologies to Noreen Nigel Gareth Declan etc, all those who've struggled personfully with this quiz, I've put Q23 in the wrong place. It should be between Yarmouth and Aldeburgh, not after Aldeburgh. I'll check my RAquiz more thoroughly before I launch it tomorrow(it's a bit easier too).

I think you're fibbing gareth.I know a considerable number of remarkably disgusting verses of the Good Ship Venus, and I dont recall Jerusalem and Madagascar appearing. The cabin boy was Nipper, i recall, and did something unmentionable with broken glass. But the quiz answr was definitely Bristol (There were three sailors from Bristol City), and the cabin boy was Little Boy Billee. Now,only two questions to go: H.P. and horror; and somewhere where something old and bloody happened.

Mention in the Telegraph today that the royal pyrotechnacist (name forgotten) has finished his work for the Jubilee, and is planning the blowing-up of a model of the Houses of Parliament, with fireworks, for 5 November 2005 (the 400th anniversary of the last occasion when someone entered the buildings with a serious intent!)

Just posted to old thread afte reading it: try again. One question left, must be two difficult.More hints: very old song, maybe not even as song, just a poem. I imagine it sung to a harp. On a bloody subject. The placenames in the title. Find someone who's heard of Beowulf and ask them, they've probbly studied this as well.

Well, at least it had some of the whips and chains associated with dungeons!
