How does the treasure hunt work?

There are 22 clues to solve on the treasure hunt.

Write the answer to each clue on the last page of the downloadable pack.

There is a dash for each letter of the correct answer, though one letter in each answer will be in a box.

Once you have solved all the clues, each letter that is in the box forms part of a five-word anagram (and there is a number in brackets to tell you what word the letter is in)

For example:

If the clue was “what is the name of the train station which serves South Norwood?”, your answer would be ‘Norwood Junction’.

You would have a space on the answer sheet that looks like this:

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ 🔲_ _ _ _ _ _ _   (3)

This would mean that the letter ‘J’ would be in the third word of the anagram.
