I say just carry on as usual until there is an official announcement regarding letterboxes, all we have at the moment is hear say from third parties.

Don't worry about it, even if they do ban letterboxing, how are they going to police it, I have several boxes on the Willsworthy range and that is where they are staying, I am sure other letterboxers will feel the same! It will be even more "underground" than it is now. The problem with geocaching i...

This reminds me of all that nonsense back along regarding SSSI's within these areas all geocaching stopped whereas letterboxing carried on. It will be the same this time, it will take more than the British army to stop letterboxers! :lol: Anyway this will only affect Willsworthy, they do not own Mer...

I have used this path many times, but only on the return trip, as the WW end can be wet, you don't want to start a walk with wet feet! Perhaps the DNPA could do some path maintenance for us!

Well done SS. good posting, but I am afraid people who may have started letterboxing in the past few years, may have gone to the darker side!!
Much easier that way, it is just sitting there on a website.

really, owner must have abandoned it then, I haven't been that way for a while but if it is still there when I am passing next time I will remove it. Just been reading the cache page which says: It's on the left of the path, in the wall of the second ruined house, as you head up to the tor. Makes yo...

That one should have been removed ages ago, I complained to the reviewer about it, it should never have been allowed. From what I gather they put it in a hole in the farm building at Deancombe Farm, then someone moved it to the wall on the opposite side of the road, it was reported missing, the owne...

Sorry, I have to disagree. I know almost all the geocaches on Dartmoor. I have visited most of them - I keep an eye on the logs of the ones I have not yet. And there is currently only one that has been archived by the reviewer but is still on site that I know off and there is one that got lost whil...

I do both boxing & caching. There also seems to be a second caching type activity called opencaching which is especially prevalent on Dartmoor. I think it is set up by people not liking the fact geocaching has a members-only section and they have started their own. That said, I have found 1500 cach...

I think we all know Staple Tors has problems with the LBT as it is so close to the road, there are many more letterboxes in that area than the 4 caches I have mentioned, so chances are if someone goes up there to clear the area, they will find boxes rather than caches.

There are 4 caches in the Staple Tor area, the nearest two are 0.2 mile apart. While letterboxing I have found 2 caches in different areas of Dartmoor that were placed but not on the website, on making enquires about these caches one was placed in a cairn and refused by the reviewer and the other wa...

Geocaches can be found on their website geocaching.com, when someone places a cache they fill out all the details with the co-ordinates on the website then submit it to be approved by a reviewer, the reviewer looks on his geocaching map to check is isn’t in a banned area or too close to another cach...
