Yup, Lichfield - given away by the fact that it is, so I'm told, the only cathedral with exactly three spires (and also by the sign saying "Lichfield Cathedral").

As to what you win - the satisfaction of a job well done :D

The first of your pictures looks like Robert Stephenson's roadNrail bridge over the Menai Strait; the second looks like the Second Severn Crossing... were you on the old bridge when you took this?

Gold star. The light on the Severn estuary is astonishing in clear weather.
