Navigation puzzle

Updated: 4 days ago

Well, it's possible you might just be looking for something to keep your mind fired up in Navigation mode at the moment!


So, here's a little map based puzzle to take you on a stroll around Meirionnydd. References work on a 1:25,000 OS map. The paper maps it is on are OS OL18 and OL23.

All (!) you need to do is follow the directions around beneath collecting the letters that are described in the < >.


Once you have the seven letter word, you can pop the word into XXXXXXX in the URL www.no-mad.org/XXXXXXX and you'll get a picture of a fantastic bit of bronze age history in the area.


Good luck!
