First of all as a new member to this forum I would like to say hi to everyone here.

I am aware that there was a list of cornish Letterboxes as i found a topic about it, however when i click the link i get an error saying the site does not exist. Does anyone have this list who could possibly email it or provide a link. It will be most appreciated and I intend to place some boxes on Bodmin Moor myself as the girlfriend is a good stamp maker I will return the favour by providing clues.

Thanks in Advance

The best list is to be found on Ian Kirkpatrick's website, as it listed perhaps the most up to date list off boxes off Dartmoor.
The site is back up again... I'll PM you the link.

There is also this web site that may be of interest

www.gamblenet.me.uk/default.asp

I think it was designed to be a replacement for The Dartmoor Bounders' site.

Hi I have been collecting the Bodmin stamps for a while now not got them all but have a good idea of whats there. Be careful with the gamblenet list as its listing a lot that haven't been on site for a long time. I think the owner is overseas at the moment so it hasn't been updated recently. I would be interested in exchanging any clues for your boxes you mentioned, best regards DJ

Hi, I recently went to bodmin moor (rougtor) whilst geocaching I looked for a few but did not find them. I didnt really have enough time to really go through the list I have but im sure there were not some there. Would it be possible for you to send me a list of the ones you know may be there so I can start with them?

I live in London so driving to Cornwall to find letterboxes which dont exist can be slightly annoying.

I am going down on the 25th of sept

Regards
