Well done Alamein_Line! I was going to use the clue "Hit the pub" but thought it might have slowed things down.

Over to you...

Sorry for the delay. Here's a quickie:

Bell, of course.  I do like to be proved right when I mention the word "quickie".  I usually am Smile

Thanks duttonbay. . . I don't think this is more challenging. In fact, I suspect it's another quickie.

Too many of these clues are far too devious for my mind, so I will give a very devious answer.  Windsor.  

Many bank robbers pass a note, note is an anagram of eton, and Eton College is located in Windsor, West Berkshire.

Methinks it may be Balaclava !

Location: Richmond Vic
Methinks the balaclava would be just about de rigeur for hold-up men. Alamein_Line is right.  
( I am in awe of duttonbay's circuitous answer, and have a certain sympathy with his view. He once, quite correctly, took me to task for an over-complicated question, and I have tried to keep it simple ever since.)

Alamein_Line now takes up the running.
  Alamein_Line Chief Commissioner

Thanks , Valvegear !

"Alamein_Line"

Hampton. Take the indefinite article "a" away from mapathon and is it an anagram of Hampton, where there is a maze (in the UK).

Correct answer and reasoning  Very Happy

Paging duttonbay...
  duttonbay Minister for Railways

Bu**er.  I've done it again.  

I'm heading off for four weeks in a day or two, with only intermittent internet access, so although I hate doing so, I feel I should declare open floor.

I'm in the same boat (figuratively, that is ) as duttonbay.  I am also going away for some days and may not have internet access.
I'll have to declare open floor.

Cor; nobody had a go while I was away.  OK, I'll pick it up.

Thank your able bodied brother.

Yep, it sure has to be Tyabb . . . didn't think it would last long.

Over to the good wurx to see what brain teaser he comes up with.
