Dartmoor Letterboxing has been around for over 150 years and has spread around the globe. A pastime that delighted intrepid walkers of the Victorian era, yet retains a simple, fun charm that captivates and entertains thousands of fans today, ‘Letterboxers’ search the Tors and valleys for the hidden treasure, either following clues or simply searching under rocks.
A Dartmoor Letterbox is a container – typically a durable plastic box – containing a rubber stamp, a copy of which is taken for the collection, journal or scrapbook. Also inside is a visitor’s book where a Letterboxer can leave their mark, usually in the form of a ‘personal’ stamp to prove the visit.
