    I'd say around 4% of these questions have been answered without cheating.

    Nah, the only thing I've googled today was the date of the battle of Bosworth.

    Right, name the most northerly, southerly, easterly and westerly points of the British mainland.

    Nearly, although Ireland isn't part of the British mainland.

    Oh! Archnamurden or whatever it's called for the West - that Scottish Peninsula with the lighthouse at the end. So, for the south, Lizard point?

    Can't think of the furthest east - somewhere on that Norfolk coast anyway.

    You are currently in the lead...

    Lands End and John O'Groats are commonly mentioned together because they are essentially so far apart, but they aren't the most northerly, southerly or westerly points.

    Hint, the most westerly point is also in Scotland.

    LBro is correct for easterly, and I will allow Ardnamurchan point for westerly. There's a little bit of rock slightly further west but I can't be arsed to split hairs.

    But you haven't got the most northerly point yet.

    John O'Groats isn't the most northerly? Then I'm stumped. Lowestoft sounds right for the E, Archnamurden for the W, J'oG for N and Lizard point for S. Pretty sure two of them are right.

    Three are correct. But JoG isn't.
    I'm not sure anyone is going to get it so I might as well tell you that it's Dunnet Head.
