Box found on site

I visited Sheeps Tor today, to look for the letterbox mentioned above. It was found on site and in excellent condition. It took a bit of finding. It is well hidden and in a good, dry site. The owners should be commended for siting a letterbox that is well kept and dry. Once upon a time all letterbox...

Without realising

I have been wanting to write this for years. Since my planned walk for today has been, upset, by the actions of others, today seemed as good a day as any. I started letterboxing without realising I had. At my senior school I joined the A.T.C. (Air Training Corps), and during 1973-4 we had a long wee...
