Monopoly Reveal Which Weymouth Landmark Will Be Old Kent Road

Sandsfoot castle B1

8:25am 13th September 2012

The first landmark on the Weymouth and Portland Monopoly board has been announced.

The historical Sandsfoot Castle has landed the 'Old Kent Road' spot.

It's one of the most high profile locations on the new Monopoly board that's out at the very end of next month.

Games makers are staying tight lipped about the other spots though, with just 22 up for grabs.

Who knows, Wessex FM might even make an appearance.

Dan Taylor, Monopoly Manager at the game's maker Winning Moves UK - who are producing the board under license from Hasbro - says keepers of the Castle have landed a "big coup" by appearing on Old Kent Road from the original board (price to buy: M60 - the least price on the board).

He explains:

"The Old Kent Road position is one of the most talked about and high profile locations on the new Weymouth and Portland Monopoly board.

"So we believe the Castle has scored a big coup landing this site.

"It's a plum and prestigious spot.

"We are keeping the vast majority of the board close to our community chests until we launch the game, but we have decided to announce this site first as it's the very first location on the board.

"More than 2,000 landmarks, streets or roads could potentially have appeared on the board. Realistically around 220 were in the running so many congratulations to the 22 who made the final cut."
