    If that was on a light wooden gate, would it be a wicket keeper?

    I had to come to Cambridge for a day so I thought you might like a real gatehouse.

    Quiz question: Can you spot the chair leg

    Well! We knew you lived in a posh place... but, well! :eek: In answer to your question... no, I can't see the chair leg!
    Who locks up?

    I though the Trinity College Great Gatehouse chair leg was relatively well-known - it's in Henry VIII's right hand!

    Cheers, Jeff

    Except for when it isn't - apparenly it was swapped out for a bicycle pump at one point. The university was less impressed with the modern prank and reinstated the chair leg quite promptly! I imagine one day someone will replace the headgear on the Duke of Wellington's head in Glasgow with a teacosy and all hell will let loose as the traditionalists demand the return of the traffic cone.
