Are you trying to drive me insane, V? LOL!

Just a wild guess, but was it the one in Swindon they called the Magic Roundabout? Unfortunately, the civil engineers in the States have discovered roundabouts and are now installing them on roads in a lot of urban areas in the US now.

I can see how this could be tough if you're not English! I finally had to ask my aunt in Leicester what the answer was.

Acker Bilk's big hit from 1961 was his trademark tune "Stranger On The Shore."
