    Urquhart Castle looks a bit run down, Roofs gone and the widows, Will they still pay rates on the place, Was a time if it was empty you didnt, But they didnt like that, So now suddenly they burst into flames and have to be pulled down, Then you dont pay rates, The number of great buildings that are lost forever, just because this greedy goverment want the money, But if the castle belongs to a MP it will be ok, I'm sure of it,

    MPs dont pay rates on their second homes. But Reg already guessed that.

    Why should that be ?, They get well payed for doing not a lot, Free lunches and drinks, If they have a second home why should they not pay, Free taxis, More holidays than Alan Wicker, Guy fawkes was right, Blow the feckers up,

    I'd go with that Adam, but I'm only guessing at 9,10 & 11, they could be in any order and I wouldn't know for sure.

    The London ones were all a bit of a guess, not a good one............

    Bletchley Park, thought London area with its political involvement, but a safe distance from the bombing, and Bath, although been there many times, got it wrong.

    You working from the north downwards. Surely Oxford is above Bath and Portmerion is off to the left between the two
