Have a root about teh forum for "charity Walks" , buy one or two in areas you would like to go for a walk. Go for the charity walk and find the 10 or more boxes the walk has clues for, BUT keep your eyes open for more boxes. Belstone Village Hall walk is good for this, also the Walk on the wild side...

To add to the list of "letter box thief's" there is the person who removes from the moor a box that is broken and no longer watertight with a sodden to pulp log book and damaged beyond printing stamp.

After a hard winter That could apply to quite a lot of boxes.

Radio Found :-) Thanks to letterboxers

3 weeks ago I lost a radio ( walkie talkie) in the Taw Valley. Today I was given it back! by a couple of lads letterboxing with their family, on Holiday, from Germany. We had been chatting, I had given them the clue for one of my boxes, they went buzzing off to find it, it seems 12-14 yr old lads th...

Found our first travelling box :- ) lost a radio :-(

We had a day out today, along the Taw valley to site 2 boxes and see if we could find a few more. Started out with a box from the Belstone Village hall walk- nice stamp, would look good in 2 colours. Then on along the valley peering under rocks as we went. Found few by this method. Eventually it was...

This box has been replaced on the moor. in a new outer pot at approximately its old location. Can't be quite sure I got the same moss covered rock at the bottom of a clitter field, but pretty sure its the same clitter field. Many thanks to those at the meet who figured out who would have a clue and ...

re small kids at the meet- we took our 4 yr old to the October meet. it was bit too loud and busy and full of grown ups for his taste. Some kids will love that buzz tho. Good place to pick up charity walks, having the map to look at and gauge difficulty of terrain was handy. Next weekend I am aiming...

Why not. not everybody has the physical ability to get onto the high moor. I thought part of the point of pub/ cafe boxes was to allow the less able to participate.
AND the thirsty boxer gets to add another stamp at the end of the day.

Nice locally relevant stamp of the tinners rabbit. placed by Tinners Morris.
