Nice little walk up on Hameldown tonight.

I'm not sure if these are missing, very well hidden or I'm just a numpty - but I couldn't find a single one of this 12 box series.

All the descriptions bar one say "plugged" and I've never had much success with this, and the coords are only 8-digit but I definitely matched the other reference points on 1, 3, 11 and 10 and couldn't find a ruddy thing!

Has anyone else found any of these recently - could you give me a hint?

Curried Letterboxers 84 - found the spot, bang on coords and found a rock matching very clear description with suitable hole, but no box. Sad

Did find quite a few unlisted boxes around there, highlight of which was Old House box.

I was up on Hameldown yesterday and looked unsuccessfully for a few of these but didn't bother with the rest as I had no luck. Confirmation that they have gone would be welcome, otherwise I'll add myself to the numpty category! I also found what I thought was an empty site for a "Curried" box but can't remember the number. Did the clue involve a large boulder by a track on the opposite hillside?

Crying or Very sad I did the walk in 2003 when the boxes were put out WOM. I would presume that the owner would have gone around and checked them to make sure they were all on site before putting them on the update to go into the catalogue.

Ah, thank you. Good to know I'm not a numpty. Smile
