Well I found the topiary pig first. A reminder that new things are there to be discovered even if you know your own stomping patch pretty well. A chain of events caused by a bloke from Hertfordshire and his mate marauding around Northumberland led me to discover this for the first time only recently :-D

I therefore claim Northumberland with this :-D

I realised that if I claim Cambridgeshire I'll be able to drive from Southend to Blackpool using only my claimed counties so here is Ely cathedral: :-D

And in a connected Coup, I claim the strategic crossing of at South Queensferry and claim the historic county of West Lothian

Formerly in the county of West Lothian, South Queensferry lies on the south shore of the Firth of Forth, 10 miles (16 km) west of Edinburgh. It has been an important crossing at least since 1071 when Malcolm III granted free passage at the 'Queens Ferry' for pilgrims on their way to St Andrews.

I thought Montgomeryshire may have been one of the last to be claimed. I have done a similar thing on US States and the last to be claimed........Wyoming!

Another look through my none Stroll pictures yielded White Waltham airfield in Berkshire, a roundabout in Bedfordshire, Iver Heath car park in Buckinghamshire and a street in West Hampstead which would be in Middlesex on the target map: :-D
