The Foxer

Warm-up Foxer (Where am I?)

I'm standing next to a thick steel door with the words "CHATWOOD'S PATENT LONDON" painted on it. The country I'm in has produced two Nobel laureates and last hosted a Formula 1 GP seven years ago. I'm due North of an enclaved country and a town that gave its name to a famous WW2 battle. 220 metres away is a 220 foot tall medieval tower. I can't see the sky. I'm 250 metres from a bascule bridge.
