HOW well do you know the district’s largest town? Do you ever look up when walking around Stratford and notice those little details on top of some of the buildings?

Well, Herald photographer Mark Williamson does (he has been in the job for a fair few decades) and will be putting your knowledge of Stratford to the test with this picture quiz.

Mark has been out and about around Stratford taking images of everyday sights. Some are close-up, detailed shots of buildings, others will be photographs of areas you may regularly walk or drive passed.

All you need to do is name the building (or statue) and see how many points you can accumulate – there’s one point for each correct answer.

The answers can be found at the bottom of this page – no peeking. Enjoy.
