    OK - my puzzles usually last about 5 minutes, so here's the one for the next hour.

    Where are we this time?

    Cheers,

        Do you mean Devon Ombugge?

        If so, no, afraid not.

            Hi both.

            On this occasion Yves is right. Keep going - you're onto it.

                I think that bit is strictly Kingsand, but yes, absolutely.

                I did feel terribly bad about telling Ombugge that it wasn't Devon, because it's only a very, very short distance on the chain ferry across the River Tamar to Plymouth and Devon.

                Photo was actually taken on a beautifully sunny November day last year.

                Over to you again Yves!

                  I kept in mind that you went to South West UK last year.So if Devon wasn't correct Corwall could be the right place. Just at the border.

                Are there any takers for this new one?

                    More likely Normandy? Has this something to do with Rollon?

                    Sigve you are not on the track
                    Ombugge,you are.Yes it is in Normandy and Rollon has something to do with this affair .......

                  It must be the grave of William II (William the Conqueror) in the Abbey of Saint-Étienne, Caen. So you hadn't to go far for this puzzle.

                  William II was the Duke of Normandy and later William I King of England and a member of the Rollonian dynasty.

                    Yes Ralf,absolutely.It is the church Saint Etienne of Caen at five minutes walk from my home.
                    Inside you can see the grave of Guillaume, who was the great-great-great Grandson of Rollon.
                    ​Your link is very helpful to prepar a visit to Caen.

                      Okay, then let's try another one for the weekend. Please try to find out the place as exact as possible (not only the area), so maybe it then might not bee too easy:

                        No puzzlers yet? Come on, it is very easy...

                      Well, are we in the Black Forest for starters?
                      Later: perhaps somewhere along the Hoellentalbahn?

                      Switzerland? Gotthard pass? I think it's the Biaschina Spirals.

                      Not convinced though.

                        Mark, it is amazing, how good you know any kind of rails all over the world.
                        It is Gotthard, but we do not see the Biaschina Spirals. There the highway is very close to the road, but in our picture it is not.
                        You have to try one more time.
