Not sure you are right. DNPA have been supportive & have agreed "Guidelines" so don't think they have turned a blind eye.

The letter from the MoD to the Geocaching Association of Great Britain deals only with geocaches and does not mention letterboxes. It is only GAGB members who have mentioned letterboxes and for some reason have tried to suggest that if their caches are banned from MoD land then so are letterboxes. ...

Re: MOD / Willsworthy - Ban of Letterboxes

I have not seen any documents relating to the discussion but am interested, obviously as a keen letterboxer, as to the real outcome. I am sure someone will correct me or comment as to the following- The Mod do not own the ranges land on Dartmoor they lease it and only under close scrutiny and agree...

Hmmm... Yes...No mention of Letterbox anywhere in the MOD thread. I'm guessing letterboxes have only just become a security issue? All the ones that have been hidden on the Willsworthy range for the last thirty years were fine, no security issue with them? As for it being a public health and safety...

Which bit? There's more than one BIT???????? There's more to letterboxing than one might think.....me thinks :oops: What ??? I was referring to the Bit Nik KOTM would be willing to take on. The cost of Hosting a site that allows SQL does not come cheap. I would also surmise that the some of the oth...

Had some more thoughts.

Who would fund the hosting of the site,would ALL the boxes be listed on one site. Would there be a cost to be able to view the clues. Who would manage the site?

Not small issues me thinks...

"If Letterboxing is going to survive, (that includes Dartmoor, The New Forest, The South Downs, North Yorkshire Moors, Exmoor, Brecon Beacons etc.) it must modernise and move in a similar direction." This surly will open up the clues locations etc to The "Thief" it will also increase (we think) bein...

We use Brush Pens, certainly brightens up the stamp. Sometime though we just use "Dartmoor Black" especially if it is raining!! :) :)

Nik - not that I think this would necessarily be a good thing, but I'm not sure agreement from every box owner would be needed. It is not a huge leap to assume that those who submit their details to the *publically available* book want their boxes published and spread. Putting online is just anothe...
