Dowlais CaeHarris turns up as a link for the micra milage.....Why :?:

Dowlais Cae Harris railway station served the village of Dowlais, Glamorgan, Wales, from 1867 to 1964 on the Rhymney Railway. The station opened on 1 February 1867 by the Rhymney Railway. It was situated behind Antelope Hotel, which is still extant today. The station closed on 15 June 1964.
Some Trivia About Dowlais it was the birthplace of Laura Ashley.
Born in Dowlais, Merthyr Tydfil, her Welsh parents lived in London, her mother returned home to allow Laura Mountney to be born in Wales at her grandmother's home, 31 Station Terrace, She was raised in a civil service family as a Strict Baptist. The chapel she attended in Dowlais (Hebron) was Welsh language and although she could not understand it, she loved it, especially the singing. Educated at Marshall's School in Merthyr Tydfil until 1932, she was then sent to the Elmwood School, Croydon. She was evacuated back to Wales aged 13, but with so many World War II evacuees there were no school places left and she attended Aberdare Secretarial School.
Quite a contrast from a centre of Iron and steel to her floral prints!

Actually 444 as I buggered the trip meters trying to get one to reset automatically when the car was refuelled. Didn't work but it is 76 miles since last fill-up.

Son sent the picture to my phone - that couldn't deal with it. Had to email it instead.

Probably an easy google look up but I wont.

Not anywhere within 100 miles of here, and I don't know the destination. So looks like I'm going to struggle.

Then again just posed the question randomly at chez nous, and a few quick keyboard taps later from behind the screen of another active laptop came "Bristol its the name of a shopping centre" :-D

So unless it was captured in Bath heading to Bristol my guess would be Bristol :-D

Now if it was Grainger Street in Newcastle I would have a sporting chance but somewhere in the depths of the South West, with the only clue being the dressed stone on the buildings, and a cafe Nero on the corner is going to be a no chance.

So is it Bath?

Now if I had I been able to deduce "21a High Street" from the visual information provided, without doing a google search, or physically visiting Bath that would have been clever I'll admit.

When you said you wouldn't use google I thought you meant you would do your own searching from clues like cafe Nero website etc. I must admit I find it more entertaining to avoid using search engines if possible and just try websites from clues!! Still we got Steve a picture!! :-D

May 31st coming up. Miles for the month time at close of play Monday.

The Micra has had a few outings in its workhorse capacity, so I've probably spent more than I wanted on petrol.
