How well do you know London? Well enough to tackle our fiendishly difficult quiz compiled by Chris Fautley, author of the London special?
There’s a prize for the first five all-correct answers (or the next best). You’ll find some of the solutions in Chris’s feature; others in his newly published book Discovering London’s Docklands; while for others you’ll have to dig a little deeper.
WIN: Each of our five prize winners will receive a copy of Discovering London’s Docklands, by Chris Fautley (Shire Books, £6.99; $US13.95. ISBN 978-0-74780-845-9). This illustrated book reveals Docklands’s mysteries and secrets such as the launch site of the Great Eastern; where pink pigeons were a common sight; where to find a piece of Britain’s first iron-clad frigate; and how Mudchute got its name.
