Today’s outing was to Wickham Bishops and Great Braxted to pick up some mutlis, puzzles and revisit a trad which I had DNF’d a few weeks ago.

First stop was the Church Micro at Great Braxted. Despite owning the CM a Little Braxted, I’d never visited this church before, so it was definitely worth a visit. The sun eventually came out too, once I’d spent more than half an hour roaming the churchyard, looking for clues.

The Trad at Beacon Hill was the one which had been missing for my last visit. Today the weather was much better and so was the reward.

I then moved on to Wickham Bishops to do three multis around the village set by kareninwb. Two were successfully completed but the numbers at one clue point were missing and I could not pick up the last one. There’s always another day….

But the most satisfying find of the day was one of Mr Crow‘s fiendish Rally Round puzzles, RR31 – Urban Bishops. I’ve looked at it on and off for several years and made zero progress. But yesterday I took another look at the cache page and had an idea. Not how to solve the puzzle (I still have no idea) but where the hide might be.

A bit of speculative rummaging in my likely spot and there it was! Yay! Successful Crowjecture completed!
