The one of debatable address (some insist it is in Somerhouse Orchard, BA6 8JA and others that it is in Lambrook Street, BA6 8BY).

But no, whatever we call it the spot, not there.

Right building, almost the right name. The image was taken from the top of the tower of St John the Baptist's church, which is C. of E., not from the nearby Baptist Church.

For this one, the prize is only for the specific location, not for 'within about 3 miles of....'

Spot on! Woodlands Rd where it meets Priority Rhyne (which reminds me to try to find where that name came from).

There are people in the town who would come up with the most weird and wonderful explanations for the disappearance of St Michael's Tower from that image!
