Not my photo but I have sort of been there, was a short ferry trip from the island we were staying. This is a bigger island compared to where we were

Do you mean the Marathon Dam? Apparently the same white marble used in its construction (external cladding) was also used in the construction of the Parthenon / Acropolis...

That's what I was thinking of Wendy. Interesting reading about its construction I thought.

Your turn........ Very Happy

Thanks Joy.   Very Happy

OK then, probably quite an easy question, so I have gone into more detail to make it more interesting - well I think it is anyway!   Very Happy



What and Where am I?

I was first suggested in the 7th Century BC, although the technology did not exist to construct me.

The idea was developed into a modern version and I was finally opened in the 19th Century.

1.What and where am I?

2.What is my purpose and what do I save?

3.Who was the very first person to suggest me?

4. What are my dimensions?

5. What exact date was I first used?

6. What do I have at each end, installed in 1988?

7. What other activity (there is a school) also now takes place here? (Although this is definitely not the purpose for which I was built!)

Would anyone like to have a guess at the main question?

Please don't look for anything too complicated, it is actually quite straight forward....

Further clues can be provided...

No, sorry Joy.

No.1 is a two word answer, alliterative, does that help?

I have been in a vehicle which was driven past it and I would like to go back to take a closer look.

Well Done Nick!



I hope you and Nick are both doing well Chris.

Anyone want to answer the other questions?  

Then you can decided between you who wants to set the next challenge? Very Happy
