Drives are tours of
parts of Britain that are of particular natural beauty and usually
also include features of historic interest. They involve stops at
various places along the way in order to solve some of the puzzles,
but most don't require much walking. If they do, then this is spelt
out in the route's introduction.
You will need to have with you a standard road map
of the area covered.
The Driving routes are compiled in such
a way as to avoid the necessity to be looking for answers to clues
whilst using busy, 'A' class roads. However,
you are reminded that the driver of
the vehicle should not be taking part whilst on the move.
There are always sections in the route
which require you to park the car and explore a village or town. The
driver can then join in. The
drives should not be seen as a 'rally'. There are no prizes to be
won by accomplishing the route at speed.
If you are organising an 'event' on the public
highway that involves more than 12 vehicles then you require
authorisation, which can be obtained from the Royal Automobile Club,
Competition Authorisation Office. The link below provides good advice
Here at Clues To Go we provide the question &
answer sheets only - we cannot help you with legal advice etc. if you
are organising an event.
routes through cities and towns. These are generally a
one mile tour of an interesting historical area and are not too
demanding, physically. It is not necessary to have a street map.
It is recommended that if you are using a Clues To Go route for an
event, then you do a 'dry run' yourself, before the event, to ensure
that none of the features refered to have recently been removed.
Notes on using the Question Papers
The length of the route, approximate time needed to
be taken and some general information is included at the start of
each paper. Also included is a sketch map for the majority of the
routes. For drives, you will also need to take a road map with you.
The main body consists of a series of questions,
riddles and photo identification questions. A space is provided to
write down your answers. It also shows the points you can award
yourself (1 to 5) for each correct answer. The harder the question
is, the more points awarded. (for an example, click
Also included within the questions are some
instructions regarding directions to take and when to move on from an area.
The answers to the questions do not usually require
any specialist knowledge of the region. All the answers are there to
be observed, if you are looking in the right direction. However, an
occasional question or two may not be so obvious and may require some
general knowledge or your powers of deduction.
To answer the questions, it
is not on any occasion necessary to trespass on private property. All
solutions can be arrived at from observations from public rights of
way. Also, the answers are not to be found in private grounds or
homes, so it is not necessary to go peering into people's gardens or
windows. Please respect people's privacy.
the Question & Answers pages.
We will e-mail the route's question & answer
pages to you usually the same day. If you don't receive this within
24 hours, please chase us up through firstname.lastname@example.org (e-mail
communications are not infallible).
The question & answer pages will be sent to you
in the form of an e-mail, with three web page addresses attached (two
versions of the questions page, to either print or use on a mobile
device, a third containing the answers), together with a password to
access these. The answers page includes photographs of all the
locations of the answers, with explanations where necessary.
You are welcome to print as many hardcopies of the
question pages as you require. Also print a hardcopy of the answers
page. These web pages can also be downloaded to your Iphone,
smartphone or tablet, if required.
You are advised that the web page password will
only work for 30 days after you receive it. After that period you
will no longer be able to log on to the web pages.
If you have any problems opening the web pages
after receiving them, or cannot print them, please contact Clues
to Go at email@example.com
The questions & answers can also be forwarded
to you in hardcopy form, (with the answers sealed in a separate
envelope from the questions). There is a small additional charge for this.
Please note that, although every effort is made to
ensure that the questions on Clues To Go routes relate to features
that are expected to be around for at least the next ten years, it is
always possible that the feature or building may have changed or been
destroyed and this is beyond our control. We do routinely re-check
the routes so as to avoid this happening.
You are welcome to print off as many copies of the
question sheets as you require. However, the reproduction of the
answer sheets is restricted. These should not be duplicated en-mass.
Nor should the web page you receive access to be copied and/or
published on the world wide web (note the expiry period). Legal
action will be taken if the answers are re-produced on the world wide
web or re-produced in publications without the author's permission.
