Like the idea of this. Possibly may need to alter the rules a little to accommodate all, like over a week to allow us poor soles who have to work.
great idea though, can just imagine all active letterboxes trying to get up there to site a box or 2. As long as eeryone didnt choose the same area!

According to the book this was sited in April 1997 and only had 4 stamp finds in it -May 1997, 2 in Aug 14 & 1 Sept 14. Since it has the first 1997 stamp in it assume this is still the first book and...

Only up there last fri (27.02) but only got as far as heckwood tor so may not have got to them. A bonus for a letterboxer that finds this sight but lets hope they go back to their rightful places. Is this a case of a local 'clearing' his moor!? Wonder if the 5 missing stamps that i was looking for a...
