    Don't look down

    Here's an aerial view of a British landmark that I visited last year. Your challenge? Tell me what/where it is. Bonus points if you can find this image elsewhere on the web!

    Thank Leif. In which case perhaps I should say "Close but no [choccy bar]" instead <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>
