The competition fun of 2015 might have come to a close but you can still have an adventure exploring Barnwell in 2016! See our ‘How to Play‘ page to find out how you can get your copy of The Barnwell Treasure Keys map and clues.
We want to reward your appetite for discovery and the thrill of solving a puzzle – so from 31st May 2016, we’ll be rewarding one lucky winner every month with a copy of a Treasure Trail, anywhere in the UK. That way you will be able to continue your quest for discovery, fun and learning, in a new neighbourhood!
Unsure what a walking treasure hunt is? Need some help to get going?
Come and join us! On Sunday 14th June we’ll be hosting two one-and-a-half hour sessions showing you how the puzzle works and where to find some of the clues. It’ll be about a mile and a half walk around Barnwell, starting outside the Library.
There’ll be one walk at 10am and one at 1.30 pm. Just turn up! If you need tips and advice about what to wear and general safety when walking about, visit our ‘Safety on the Trail‘ web page.
The clues are all around you! Can you solve the puzzle and win a reward?
It’s a Mystery!
Local Abbey historians are trying to decide if ‘Barnwell’ means ‘Children’s Well’ or ‘Warrior’s Well’ according to old Saxon English. While doing their research, they have uncovered some documents which suggest the area of Barnwell holds the keys to a mystery. Five keys to be precise. There are photographs, a map and a set of clues. Who knows where they will lead? Can you solve this puzzle piece by piece and find out?
