    Hey Winnie,

    Back again so soon! Glad you didn't disappear for another 2 years

    Hi,

    Is anyone else working on TWT at the moment? I've had a few months off and have hardly thought about it at all during that time. Am going to have another good look at it this week and plan to have my first ever visit to Winchester very soon - hope that might help trigger something!

    Regards,
    Xodiak

    We're always pleased to see people visit Winchester. Use the book as your guide - or pop in to the Tourist Information Centre and go on a walking guided tour. And don't forget to pop in to the Cathedral - well worth it.

    Somewhere, you are almost certain to see the hiding place...

    Hi Winnie, yes I am looking forward to following the route in your book, I've looked at it so much I could probably follow the route blindfolded!! Sadly, I'll probably see the hiding place and not know it.

    Hi Winnie, wow what a lovely place Winchester is. We were passing through so couldn't spend as much time there as I would have liked but followed the whole route in the book, albeit a bit hastily. Didn't have time to go in cathedral though

    Regards

    Hello All,

    Is anyone still working on this hunt? I return to it now and again for another try but have just noticed that the book's website is not available. It was still available fairly recently (maybe 2 or 3 months ago) but is not available today. Hope it hasn't permanently gone.

    Regards
    Xodiak.

    the original domain name has expired. The internet Wayback Machine has its last snapshot of the site from late 2016 which does not bode well for you.

    While winchestertreasure.co.uk does exist, i'm not getting any pages from their server. The Wayback Machine does have a snapshot from January of this year, so it could be offline for any number of reasons.

    I think it officially ended years ago

    The original deadline was the end of 2007, but as it was not solved by then I believe it was due to run indefinitely until a correct answer was submitted. I would think if it was officially wrapped up the book's website would have announced it, and there was no mention of an end the last time I checked which I believe was only 2 or 3 months ago. Plus I would have thought this forum would have been updated too as the author used to regularly post here. Keeping my fingers crossed that it's just a temporary hosting problem.
