Is this dodgy enough?
This doesn't last forever, so do it while you can.

I go through Knockin once a month on the way back to my moms in Stafford.
Of course being a gentlemen I've never been in the "Knockin shop".

A new one for that's not on the list. I present to you Clittaford Road in Plymouth.

Evening ladies and gentlefolkses.
I'd like to lay claim to Helstone and Brown Willy in Cornwall please.

  I had a great time asking directions and searching out signs for Brown Willy, fnaar fnaar! Sat navs tend to get a bit lost at times on the wilds of Bodmin Moor, there are still dragons roaming around up there you know🐉
  Nearest I could get to proof was a screenshot of the satnav and camera viewer where the public road/gravel track ran out 1.8 miles away. See pic one.
 Had I wanted to trespass down the private road, an unimpressed farmer type soon arrived and prevented me from doing so anyway. So hopefully 1.8 miles away will suffice to lay claim to it for now, until some brave soul in Kevlar does a stealth mission to get a bit closer lol.
  If anyone does want to try please do bear in mind that the whole area is a SSSI. So do go steady and don't spook the wild horses, sheep, rare butterflies and wild bees; -or the lonely resident Cornishfolks up there [who allegedly still throw stones at aeroplanes] as the blood lines up there ALWAYS need thinning. You have been warned ⚠️😉 No offence intended to any 200th generation Celts who might be reading this, just a bit of banter 😘
  Brown Willy is the hill to the left on the far horizon in pic 1 btw. It's the highest point in Cornwall.
  Other pics are from:
• Rough Tor|~pronounced row-tor~| carpark [which is the nearest official parking place to Brown Willy, 7 miles away by foot] showing OS grid ref and info board for there... [and a rather special warning lol 😉...]
• A pic of the bike with Rough Tor in the background taken from the other side of the stream through the ford by the narrow bridge, near where the gravel track becomes a cattle track, down the valley and up the hill a bit, by the new wall, just round the corner from the hairpin bend, and up the trail a bit from the offset, cambered crossroads 🥴 and taken from the end of some lucky recluses drive 😃 #paradise
• And finally the bike in front of the HELSTONE village sign on the A39

  Great day out on the WeeBee 🐝🤙🙏🌞
Always remember you're never lost, you're just exploring 😉
  Have a good evening all.
  Ade.

This one hasn't been claimed, so now added to the list. :thumb:

I have already claimed another Cock Lane, which sounds like a right dodgy sentence.
