Telephone Treasure Trail 2014: Clues and answers

Telephone Treasure Trail 2014: Clues and answers

Congratulations to all those who got all the anwers to the Telephone Treasure Trail this year! For those of you who struggled here they are - better luck next year!

This annual telephone quiz has been running since 1995 and usually runs over four nights in November. Well over 350 groups have been known to take part.

Each year one NWR group sets the questions. All of the groups taking part are sent a quiz pack in a sealed envelope to be opened on the night. Volunteer clue holders stand by their phones from 8pm to 10pm on their allotted nights to accept answers and provide groups with the next question.

We had all the answers right (Dereham and District NWR), and although we quite understand there will be a draw if more than one group gets the right answers as a way to establish a winner, perhaps a mention of those that did complete the quiz 100% successfully would be appreciated by those who took part!

Thank you for the quiz, it was great fun.
