trying to find another grotto

I sincerely hope you do NOT find one.

Like Mike (DutchMM), I tried a wide variety of combinations last time, including “church” in different languages, before giving up. If it hadn’t been for your Mission clue I would never have found your “Grotto”.

I took this after a St Patricks Day Parade

Bourton on the Water?

I can see the logic of suggesting the Itchen at Winchester, but I think the colour of the stone is wrong.  I am guessing somewhere in the Cotswolds from the white stone.  First guess is Bourton.

Re: Bourton on the Water?

Well it used to be in my back garden, so to speak.  I grew up in Bicester, and lived there again  for 16 years in the 80s and 90s.  We used to take overseas visitors to the Cotswolds and if they had children with them we always took in the model village at Bourton.  I remember the children were always fascinated by the model of the model in the model.

Free turn if I'm right.

Looks Scottish to me. I would say Glasgow central station.
