Snoop The new "P*ss of Biggles"?

An 18-year-old has secretly painted a 60ft drawing of a phallus on the roof of his parents' 1million mansion in Berkshire. It was there for a year before his parents found out. They say he'll have to scrub it off when he gets back from travelling.
BBC - Newsbeat

Does anyone know where this is? ... and before you start, other than in Berkshire!

Happy hunting,

SIA

I am sure someone will have found and tagged it on Google Earth. I can't check it out from work, though.

Wouldn't waste time looking for it, as scarecrow mentioned, it was in the news about a year ago, and covered extensively on PPRuNe

Already recce'd it by 'accidentally' putting the house concerned on track during a LL nav. It was cleaned off months ago, unfortunately. I flew over within days of the original news article and the offending giant gland was already gone.

Lat Longs

Does anyone have the lat longs of Piss off Biggles handy? I've been there before but can't remember exacty where it is. A long and tedious search of the AMPA imagery while waiting for an inevitable scrub of a sortie failed to produce the goods.

Any directions, pointers or grid refs really appreciated!

I thought the thread was about Spitfire's new cask ale.

I believe the barn sporting the original customer feedback message was demolished sometime ago.

I still think Biggus Dickus takes the biscuit, it was a great turning point - so to speak on the way to the plain.

One has wondered before about these old new stories popping up on the BBC. In the news pages, they have this most read & most shared box & it seems that during the quiet periods, if two or three people at most click on a story, it makes it's way back on to the front page. It's caused by the French of course.

In that case, Sprogget, if everyone shares this we can test your theory!

Probably, OOT, because they loose sight of what they are saying, and use a lose spelling...

I'm not sure some of those locations are correct. I would argue, after much research, Sally's protrusions are much further south.
