What is letterboxing?

Letterboxing is an outdoor pursuit with similarities to orienteering.

A small pot (the letterbox) containing a stamp and visitors' book is hidden on the moor, and a clue is written to lead others to its position. Clues may be as simple as a map reference and list of compass bearings, or may be more cryptic.

When a letterbox is found, the letterboxer takes a copy of the stamp, as well as leaving their own personal print in the visitors' book.

Letterboxing began on Dartmoor but is now popular in areas all over the world.
