I solved Fenners 1984′s cricket-themed puzzle Stumped On A Sticky Wicket a while ago and thought I should revisit his hide today, since the CO had been kind enough to check it was still there after my recent DNF. Sure enough, I put my hand straight on it today – how come I missed it last time? Must be sheer incompetence! Argh!

I spent a little time wandering around Great Waltham afterwards, to make some pictures.

After my abject failure at Pleshey Ring 12 last week, I realised it was my own fault because I can’t divide simple numbers. Ha! Having seen the error of my ways, I even found the hint item in Google Street View after crunching the right co-ordinates, so I decided another visit would be in order today.

Once at the location, I found what I was looking for after a short search. It’s always satisfying to turn a previous DNF into a 🙂  And Day 4 of my non-trad streak completed.
