Treasure Hunt was organised by Ian and Christine Scott and commenced at their lovely home which used to form part of the  Woolf  'Babe'  Barnato's  Adenrun  Estate. Wolf Barnato was a Kimberley Mines millionaire and one of the 1920s 'Bentley Boys', and owned Bentley before selling it to Rolls Royce. Adenrun Hall burned down but the extensive terraced grounds can still be seen in the lower photo left. Scott residence contains the original coach and horses washing drive-through station.

Christine (left), with neighbour Jo, provided all entrants with a free cup of coffee and a bacon buttie,  which was much appreciated by. Snacks were taken in their back garden while the car were parked in the driveway.

The Treasure Hunt is  a case of driving to a specified location, parking, and walking to find the answers to clues defined on the questionnaire. The first set of clues were to be found at the British Wildlife Centre at Newchapel.

The second set of clues were to be found in Turners Hill, starting at The Crown and walking around the green. One of the questions was how many birds face east; found the birds but confusing because from this side six face east but from the other side as the shield is the other way, so NONE!

The third set of clues were to be found at the nearby Tulleys Farm which used to be a big pick-your-own enterprise. It subsequently grew via farm shop and tea rooms into a 'themed' venue holding seasonal events, weddings and corporate events.

The only thing that slightly spoiled our day was that the Pub had booked two car clubs on the same day and because the Traction Owners Club arrived earlier and took possession of the car park and restaurant, the Manager decided that it was our fault because we had not booked. 
A very negative attitude by the Manager bearing in mind that we were pre-aware that another club was also coming, which we would not have known if we had not booked, and because we have been coming to the same pub on the same day every year almost since the Society began!!
