SHOOVER GOT PAGE 2 (THE ANSWER TO WHICH WAS MCDONALD'S ISLINGTON) AND SOLVE PAGE THREE TO GET A HINT TO SOLVE THE NEXT PAGE.

Just as was for solving the first
Page number three had started to burst
With ink to tell you what to do
With the book your Uncle had given to you

A measurement of six squares
South from page 2s wheres
314.2 of these
And note the road you are on, please
Take away his Spanish letter
This is the operation for your next endeavour

Strange words these, I cannot figure
Maybe words for someone with a brain that is bigger!

Hint 1:

What measure of length is similar to a shape?

Hint 2:

It is a simple direction from point A to point B

Hint 3:

It begins with a 'C'

I think the answer might be:

Neville Place

My logic is as follows:

A measurement of six squares is a cubit. There is no official definition, but generally it is about 2 feet. 314.2 cubits south of McDonald's Islington puts you on Pentonville Rd. Removing the Spanish letter (pe) leaves "ntonville". Stretching, I scan this as "N to Nville", and there is a Neville Place about 5 miles north of McDonald's in Islington.

EDIT: Let me take another shot. I think the answer is:

The Crafts Council building on Pentonville Rd.

Reasoning:

Following my previous reasoning, you end the second to last line with the clue "ntonville". Instead of trying to parse this, assume it just means "north". If you actually go to the point 314.2 cubits south of McDonald's Islington and face north, the Crafts Council building entrance is right there.

  • $\begingroup$ No, that is not the answer. However, you were right with the cubits $\endgroup$ – William Pennanti May 15 at 14:51

Just some random thoughts:

Google suggests a cubit is equal to 18 inches. So 314.2 cubits would be equal to 471.3 feet. At about that distance SSE of McDonalds there is a place called Cubitt Artists. Coincidence or not?
