    Default Jan 28th update

    This is the email I received today:

    The Hungerford Quest

    All good things have to come to an end, and five years on since the start of our Quest for the Hungerford Jewel we still have no winner!

    Therefore, we have decided to bring the Quest to a close by offering all who participated, and there have been many and various from all over the United Kingdom, a final chance to win the Jewel. If by 28th February we still have no outright winner, we propose to send all participants a series of straight-forward, non-cryptic questions based on the geographical locations you should have identified from the original clues.

    The final date for submitting the answers to the new questions will be 31st May. All correct entries will go into a draw and the winner will be announced on Midsummer’s Day 24th June 2014.

    The judges’ decision will be final. The prize is the Hungerford Jewel as specified in the original terms and conditions. This second chance to win the Jewel is only open to the original entrants to the competition whose details we already hold.

    We will then publish a full set of solutions to all the original clues. If you need a fresh set of these, we are happy to send them to you. Please contact us at Hungerfordquest@gmail.com.

    We hope to hold a presentation at which the winner will receive the Hungerford Jewel. The date will be announced in due course.

    With very kind regards,

    Hungerford Chamber of Commerce

    eLECHT and Linz, did either of you give this one a try? If so, what did you make of it?

    We made some progress and had a lovely little mini-vacation, but ran out of time before figuring out all the clues. (There were a couple 'location' clues that eluded us, if I recall.)

    I'm half tempted to return to Hungerford for a day out before time runs out, although I suspect it will be difficult to get much treasure-hunting in with a baby in tow!

    Hi Ingrid,

    I didn't work on this one as I wouldn't of made it to Hungerford to search ..... interestingly hasn't stopped me trying to solve Fenns puzzle though. If you decide to go searching I wish you the best of luck.
