Selby Quiz Part 1


Answers are now posted in the captions under the photos. I hope you recognised some of them!!
Well, here is a new idea. All these pictures have been taken in the middle of Selby, but where are they? If you know your town, it should be easy! There are 15 pictures this time for you to look at. Make a list of your answers, then e-mail them to 
I will leave the quiz up for a while, then put a message on the website to say who had the highest score (and the correct answers!). 
You can award yourself a virtual prize!! Good luck!
