Thanks for the info, I have passed on the full grid reference to Noddy The Toytown Trekker so hope it will be patched up and put back on the moor.

Harford Bridge Holiday Park

Been staying here for all of my letterboxing career. There are static caravans to rent, serviced hard standings for caravans or regular camping pitches along the river, then there are hot showers and modern amenity blocks. Its a great, friendly place within easy reach of the moors or Tavistock. Its ...

I blame it on the washing up.

Sometime in the summer of 2006 my wife was doing the washing up at a campsite in Cornwall and heard a couple of ladies talking about letterboxing. She got chatting to them and gleaned a few details before letting me in on the secret. So come October 2006 we headed off to Dartmoor for our first campi...

The Tavistock Ashburton Track - box found

The box is not particularly well hidden but I suppose its just not on anyone's route to somewhere else! Unfortunately ...

Back to the moors

Hadnt done any planning and managed to spend two whole days without finding so much as one letterbox! - Had a great walk past Crazywell and back via the Leat and another around Leather Tor so still good! Now I am back to the moors this w...

We are planning to head there over the weekend of 1-3rd of May and I have proposed a route from Lydford via Green Tor (Bleak House) and Great Kneeset as a shortish hike. What does the communi...
