Well Blondees and Blondettes. The Dartmoor Bauble Challenge is complete. I apologise to those of you who are not locals and couldn’t take part. Maybe next year we Blondes will have a year long quest to hang baubles all over the UK.
The bauble was supposed to end up on the Dartmoor Christmas Tree for all to admire during the festivities but, in true Blonde style, I managed to smash it on Tree’s rock whilst we were being filmed.
We didn’t have any answers that got all twenty-four locations right but we did have three very impressive attempts. Rachel, Ian and Andy – you all did so well that we would like to send you all a book. Please could you email us your addresses to firstname.lastname@example.org
The correct answers are below – don’t kick yourselves (or us) too hard!

3. Wistman’s Wood
4. Loughtor Enclosure (Bellever)
