Enter our Where in the World contest and win £30 ! - Monday's question

Closes on 26th of October 2020

You could win a £30 cash prize in our October Where in the World contest.

We will be asking you to name different locations in the world each day between now and 31st October.

We provide a picture clue which might be cryptic in addition to the written clues.

At the end of each day's contest we will pick the winner from all correct answers received and so the winner is not necessarily the first entrant with the answer. The overall winner of the £30 cash prize at the end of the competition will be the person who has the most individual wins and in the event of a tie a draw will be held to determine the winner of the £30 cash prize.

We will give you regular updates of the daily contest winners so you can see who is leading the competition.

To enter this contest you need to have paid for the upgrade service of Competitors Companion.

Only one entry per day is allowed, otherwise your entry will not count.

Linda Rixon was the first out of the hat with Saturday's answer of Thorne. Sally Crawley is our current leader with three wins. Margaret Bunn, Philip Bennett and Gillian Husband-Major have two wins. Revd Mark Madeley, Jill Taberner, Jackie Waters,Geraldine Smith, Margaret Prior, Raymond Gilroy, Joe Cushnan, Annette Duckworth, Tony Hale, Phyll Burgess, TJ Auld, Ian Campbell, Linda Rixon and Wendy Morgan have one win.

After a draw Fiona Mustoe was the overall winner of the September contest.


Best of luck...

Question:
This seaside town, which has a connection with the picture, used to be a busy quarrying town. In 1950 there was a rail disaster at the town resulting in the loss of six lives. Tragedy again came to the town in 1976 when a gardener who had a previous career in the Royal Navy killed four people at a hotel before killing himself. What is the name of the town ?
