Warning: fee involved is 8 EACH for adults, 12 ea if you want to tour the castle.

Park at the Walled Garden Car Park. Follow the path to the Swan Pond (you will be given a map of the paths when you enter the park). When you reach the Swan Pond Centre, in front of you will be a hill with a Pagoda at the top. Walk up to the Pagoda. Continue beyond the Pagoda in the same direction you were already walking, there is a path into the woods. On the left of the path there is a large tree with initials carved into it. The letterbox is at the base of the tree - behind it, hidden within the roots under a stone covered with leaves. The tree is approx 50 steps from the Info board for the Pagoda. The path slopes down just beyond the tree, so if you start walking down the slope you've gone too far. On the way back, take the Cliff walk the views are absolutely gorgeous!!

If you want to cheat on this box, you can make it a 'drive by' if you park in the Swan Pond parking lot. Go from the parking lot towards the pond, then turn left up the hill to the Pagoda. If you do it this way you won't get your money's worth though :o)

For this box, you will need:
  • An inkpad
  • Something to write with
