    Questions about the Isle of Wight, I believe.

    7. is Osborne Royal Naval College, as in the real-life event depicted in Terence Rattigan’s play The Winslow Boy.
    10. is The Needles, Lot’s Wife being one of the stacks that collapsed.
    1. I think blue slipper is a kind of clay that some of the cliffs are formed of, liable to landslips.

    One of the answers has to be related to Anthony Minghella ice cream…

    5. could be the Hoy monument, with a disparaging comparison (height wise?) to the Old Man of Hoy
