I’m doing a cryptic English towns and cities quiz and I have 1 clue left. The town or city is further south than Newcastle and further north than Hartlepool.
The clue is:
"Mars is on land surrounded by water"
I'm pretty sure that
the answer of Ram's Island is correct. It is an island in the North Irish Lough Neagh.
How you get this answer:
Mars is an anagram of Rams. Also "is on land" is mentioned in the riddle and if you put "is" and "land" together you get "island". It is also fully surrounded by water as the riddle says. This is all supposing that it is places in Great Britain as apposed to towns and cities in England.
Ram's Island is a 1.5 km island (point to point) roughly 1.7 km offshore. It is along the latitude in between of Newcastle and Hartlepool. Extra information can be found at the Ram's Island Wikipedia Page.
P.S. for further information for my interest in research, please could you tell me what website/app this is on. Thankyou.
