That must have been really annoying. Why would anyone take this?
The Cranmere 150 was missing when we were at Cranmere Pool in May.

Steph, just a note of caution this was a winter charity walk that has been left out due to it's popularity. It might be advisable to email sue & Nigel first to check it is still all on site and OK.
I have pm'd you their email address

Well MagicHarry,
If you pay a visit to the Fox & Hounds and you ask for the Letterbox you may well bump into Pebbles, if you do you had better be prepared for a long talk, informative and friendly as you will not get away for ages.
It is well worth the visit with great food and pots of good stamps.

Hi Orlabriggs, If you do this walk it is a set of stamps that complete one big picture. It just fits on an A5 page but the first stamps are not the title, so if you want to put it all on 1 page allow only about 20mm for the title, otherwise it will not fit. It is well worth collecting and makes a gr...

It is a shame and over 100 people have stamped the visitor book. This also has now been replaced, as it was found in the open and thankfully returned to us...

I was bought up with Staffies and as a child would ride on the back of Rusty holding his ears. He never threw me off or even sat down once. They are fab dogs, with chi...

Hi Jo, we use the silva 54 and love it as we can use it as a standard compass as well. If you require it purely as a sighting compass there are a few more substantial and shock proof compasses on the market. Here is a link for the 54 at a good price, if you want one. http://www.completeoutdoors.co....
