This is the online live map. Each yellow star indicates the approximate area where each clue can be found. The clue links will be included on this live map by clicking on each yellow star but the question will NOT be added. You will need to find each clue to know what the question will be.

Paper maps can be found at the tills in the Co-op.

With a little notice, paper maps can be collected from Sandy Wager at 94, Lancaster Gardens. Or you can send me a return stamped addressed envelope so that I can post a map to you.

You can also download and print off this map.

Please replace the clue and the map after reading it so that the next Treasure Hunter can find it.

If a clue seems to be missing or the clue or map have been removed please let me know so that I can replace them. Let me know which clue needs replacing. You can either email me at or call me on 01752 313645.

The Treasure Hunt will last throughout the School Summer Holidays, subject to weather conditions.

All of the 10 clues will refer to Plymouth Writers, Poets, Play-writes and Authors. 

The 1st clue will be placed amongst the 69 trees on Whitleigh Green.

Disability issues will always be considered, e.g. terrane.

If you get stuck on a clue I will give you an extra clue. Just email me for an extra clue, stating the clue number that you need help with.

You will need to take a pen and writing pad along with you. You will find all of the answers on the websites provided. Web Links will be provided with each clue.  Alternatively, the website links are clickable on the live map. 

All entries MUST be received by September 12th 2015.  All correct entries will be entered into a draw. The draw will take place on Wednesday 16th September 2015 at The Albemarle Inn, Budshead Road at approx 1.30pm.

The winner will be notified by post, phone or email during the week following the draw.

The winner will be awarded their £50 cash prize at a mutual and convenient time and place. I will need the winner to sign a receipt of acceptance and I will need to take a photo which will be published on the Whitleigh Arts website.

The Treasure Hunt is intended to promote and encourage the community to explore our local Green spaces which, in turn, will help with health and fitness in a fun and educating way within our community. Plus I hope this will also encourage people to learn a little more on how to use a computer. 

Keep watching here for updates but please also tell your friends!
