Kinder Letterboxes – 06 December

A Rucksack Club walk over Kinder to find some of the “Kinder Letterboxes” – the letterboxes are containers, often plastic boxes, containing  a visitor’s book, stamp and an ink pad. The origin and, indeed, the age of the letterboxes are unknown and finding them provides a navigational challenge and a great day out if the weather is fine. Fine it was apart from an hour or so around lunchtime. Paul found four out of four and we all went home very happy.
