Days Out in Devon: Dartmoor Letterboxing
For those of you who're not in the know, letterboxing is a type of outdoor treasure hunting. A container such as a lunchbox or even an old metal amunition box is hidden on the moor for visitors to find. If the contents are in order it will contain a stamp and a visitors' book. Once found you add your own imprint to the book together with a message for the box owner and off you go again!. dartmoorletterboxing.org publish a post of clues but buying this is not really necessary. As in our chosen location, Bonehill Rocks, some places have so many boxes that you are nearly tripping over them. Ideal locations for small boys with limited patience.
