Ermine street goes through a few london Boroughs......how about Enfield

How far up to the answers go.....London to Lincoln and York is a very long fragmented route not easily tracked through on-line mapping.

The borough is a name on the route which is also a borough, not an actual geographic borough through which it passes, all the answers are south of the answer to number 2. :-D

The other two bits are too tricky. London Boroughs it goes through Haringey/Hackney/Enfield and lets rule out Broxbourne in Deepest Hertfordshire. It ain't a London Borough although some may argue its Greater London!

As for the House Type......bungalow no....manor house....probably several mill house probably several flats...its going through cambridgeshire probably things called "flats"

Been down the ordinance survey option on bing from godmanchester downwards and drawn a blank.

Give me a clue and its nailed tonight!

You might want a bomb shelter for that house! I know where I can find a Tall Boy, and I might know somebody who has access to an aeroplane large enough to carry it!

A friend of mine has a dozen Daisy Cutters.
Spoiler: show
It is less impressive when you find out he has 12 pairs of miniature secateurs used for pruning small plants!
