    History, mystery and fun!

    I've done other walks and treasure trails, but I still learnt some fascinating facts. I loved the clues, some of them were quite cryptic and you had to think outside the box. It's a really well put together book and treasure hunt. Great for spending time and working together.

    A perfect pastime

    This was a great way to spend a few hours. We loved the look and straightforward layout of the hunt that took us round a very attractive route. The interesting facts were a bonus adding the ideal amount of detail between clues.

On the evening of 1st June 1972, a wild party erupted in the clubhouse of the ‘Bullingdon Batters’ as they celebrated a decisive victory in Oxford’s annual ‘Town vs Gown’ Cricket Club Cup. At the centre of this drunken debauchery was notorious party-animal Rupert Chumley, who had just finished top of the tournament’s leaderboard and earned himself the coveted prize of Oxford’s Golden Bat. As the revelry descended into a melee of chaos and destruction, a mysterious figure seized the opportunity to climb through an open window, snatch Chumley’s bat, and disappear into the night. In his rush to escape however, the panicked thief accidentally dropped an item of clothing that would have clearly identified him, however this evidence mysteriously vanished moments before investigators arrived at the scene. Who was the shadowy figure behind this audacious robbery? And what happened to the key evidence that could have clearly identified him? You must search the streets of Oxford for hidden cryptic messages, unravel the legendary tale using old newspaper clippings, and finally unmask the infamous villain known as the Bullingdon Bat Burglar!
