On Dartmoor there are only two Letterboxes named on the Ordnance Survey map of the Area. They both have a permanent memorial on the Moor, which only the most dedicated walkers are able to locate.
Last year on the 22nd July after a long and hard walk with only the help of a map and compasses, four of our members discovered Cranmere Pool Letterbox. This is a prize amongst Letterboxers and congratulations must go to Terry, Jim, Brian and Chris on this achievement!
A year later, the challenge was to find the second of these letterboxes. This was something, which required all the map reading skills of our intrepid walkers, as this Letterbox is literally in the middle of many square miles of open and in some places treacherous moorland. On the 23rd August after several hours of arduous tramping, stumbling across, bogs, mires and streams together with taking the odd wrong turn, the map reading skills of Chris and Terry finally achieved what many others give up on and found the elusive Duck’s Pool letterbox.
A real prize indeed! Well done both of you. Would anyone like to join us on our next walk?
