Solve the Clues & win prizes on the Crowborough Mystery Trail
During the festival month of May, you are invited to take up the challenge of a figure-of-eight walk which will take you through Crowborough gathering clues along the route and solving a mystery. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle lived in Crowborough for many years and he wrote 19 of his Sherlock Holmes stories whilst living at Windlesham Manor. Now it’s time for you to don your Sherlock Holmes thinking cap or Deer-Stalker and solve our mystery.
The trail takes about 2 hours and is 2.6. miles long. It is suitable for buggies and motorised wheel chairs but is probably too far for pre-school children on foot and manual wheelchairs. All the clues are outside so there is no need to enter buildings. You don’t need a map because the clues will direct you and as you progress you will eliminate false trails and build answers to the clues. All you need is pen & paper!
When you have finished, the trail send your completed Clue sheets to: Crowborough Community Church, The Oasis, Beacon Road, Crowborough. TN6 1AS to arrive no later than Saturday 10th June. Don’t forget to include your contact details! Prize winners will be notified by 17th June.”
Take care! You are responsible for the safety of yourself and your group. The route highlights safe crossing areas.
The Trail begins in the free car park by the Crowborough Community Centre, Pine Grove, off Mill Lane.
