Tomorrow is Mr and Mrs Herbert's anniversary so I may as well start it today..
The Game: Guess the two missing words related to a Lewes landmark.
Rules: 1 letter per post. I will check from time to time and fill (or not) in the suggested letters. You have 6 tries for this one.
IMPORTANT: If you try to guess a whole word and it is wrong I deduct two tries per incorrect word but credit three for each word guessed right. So, if you guess the first word right you get a three-try-credit but two tries are deducted if you don't guess the second word giving you a one-try net credit. Capiche?

Thank you, Thank you. I just thought I shift it to today as I will be busy cooking
Here's your lucky 'E' commuter
And a lucky 'A' for Ed Can Do.. playing it safely with vowels today?
No 'K' for daring Decent Citizen.. and no 'O' as in Onlooker either
No one will guess this one.. related to a Lewes landmark.

I'm going to go out on a limb and say the second word is LANE, which is why I asked for the A.

Ray Walker is on to something, perhaps he spotted something on one of his walks towards the Esso garage? I discreetly shall ignore Ed's and DC's post and grant you lot a bonus try.

Or the snail roundabout and the garage near there....?
 
 
On 18 Jun 2009 at 11:12am Ed Can Do wrote:
I walk past the Esso pretty much every day too...
There's something written on the house opposite but I can't remember what it says. There's also a big advert for a bathroom sale on the hoarding in the Esso. I shall walk past much more slowly this evening if nobody's got it by then.

LOL.. to clarify, on your way from Cliffe to the Esso left past the roundabout. Zola it's getting very hot with your last post and you in here.. LOL Can't wait for that (Harveys) Kiss..

Where is the Esso garage Herbert!!
Tesco's,or Malling Street?

Dear Zola. I know it's quite a way from where you are but as a good Lewes girl I would expect that you know that the Tesco garage is indeed a Tesco garage like the name and vicinity suggest. The one with the obnoxious unfriendly staff. The Esso is towards Malling and has the friendler staff. Why don't you come on one of my evening walks with me? We can have a (Harveys) Kiss or two on the river bank at sunset.

Herbert.I don't know anything about petrol stations as I don't ever go in them..Thanks for the clarification.

I think the first word is TANYARD as there is an Old Tanyard Cottage in Malling St.

Unfortunately not jonnyboy..but very good guess
Shall I reveal the answer everyone?

I drove in to work today so didn't get a decent look! There's Lewes Funeral care there with that scarab drawn on the wall, then a row of houses, Thomas Street which has an exciting looking building at the end then more houses.
The first word must be a name, the only word I can think of that fits is "ransack" but then what? Page? Pace? Pale?
I'm stumped.

There's no 'k' Ed Can Do so you're right, it must be a name or perhaps a non-English word. No first names seem to fit. I'm going to guess the first word is Ransays (or Ransay's).

Now, in case you wonder, he created the ammonite sculpture in the middle of the roundabout of Cuilfail tunnel. There's a knee-high plaque (depending how tall you are) on the small wall that separates the road from the pavement facing the houses opposite. Another small bit of Lewes trivia..

Ha ha ha, too slow. That was a tricky one! Now you've said, I remember the plaque well and have read it several times. Easy when you know the answer isn't it?

Ed, DC and Zola.. you were sooo close. Enjoy your holiday Zee. I will try not to do a game until you are back (Zola is off on a 18 months world cruise..) unless I'm asked by Onlooker who usually gets very excited comes Wednesday. DC, I'm interested how you got Randalf Page.. what did you Google? How bizarre. Ed, punishment for taking the car on a beautiful day like yesterday or you had seen it. Bet you will walk from now on? LOL

My monthly train ticket ran out yesterday and I didn't want to waste two days when I wouldn't be coming to Brighton over the weekend by buying a new one today. Not much of a defence I know.
