I can see where you're coming from hoehlenforscher but nope.
To keep things moving, here's a couple of clues:
It's in Yorkshire and is well known, if only for it's odd name.

Near enough! Though I believe its Sunday Best name is "Robinsons' Pot"  which give the clue a bit more street cred. Anyway, over to you GrahamS.......

After first track on a few Clannad albums, including "The very best of" = Robin.

P.S. andys, thanks for that, whilst googling Clannad I came across a really nice music access site, now stored in favourites :thumbsup: :clap2:

Thanks Andys. Solved more by a process of elimination of Clannad songs than by skill on my part.

I'm off for a few days so here's an easy one. Will post the soln later this evening if it's not solved.

No, fraid not - gotta go so here's the answer:

The word 'rumbling' was included as a pointer to Leck Fell.
Eric Pickles is rather large and a bit unpleasant in this instance - hence Big Meanie.

Apologies if it was a bit weak and obscure - just trying something a bit different.
Anyway over to whoever wants next go.

Nice. I had GB from middle of fishinG Boat but couldn't reconcile it with the double clue (and fact that it wasn't really the middle!).

"Sounds like a blemish on the disc after start of first track on Clannad album".

OK Fulk, Step by step;

"sounds like a blemish on the disc;                Blemish = Spot
                                                                          Disc    = Sun

                                                   Blemish on the disc   = Sun Spot

                                                   Sounds like               = Sons pot           
 
                                                          After                   = comes after
                                                     Start of                    = Starts the answer

First track on the "The Very Best of Clannad" album    = "Robin"

So the answer starts with "Robin" and "sons pot"comes after - "Robinsons Pot" - Geddit??  ;) ;)
