Letterboxing

Latest News: it is with regret that letterboxes 6, 10, 16 and 19 have sadly gone missing. However, for those who have already purchased packs from the Tourist Information Centre we would be happy to accept a photograph of each location in order to earn your 25 club badge. 

In the meantime, until we have identified new sites and accompanying clues we have decided to cease selling the letterbox packs, therefore please bear with us. 

Malvern Hills Letterboxing is a family fun form of orienteering designed to encourage children and families to enjoy being outdoors together.  The letterboxes are simply boxes with a rubber stamp, Inkpad and guest book to sign.  There are 25 letterboxes hidden all over the Malvern Hills. 

A launch event is taking place on 26th May 2018 from 10am-12.30pm at Malvern Tourist Information Centre. Click here for more information.

If you would like to take part in the letterboxing challenge, visit Malvern Tourist Information Centre and purchase your clue sheet, notebook and badge which includes a free map for just £3.  Using a map and compass you then select which stamps you would like to go and find and start your exciting adventure.  Once you find a rubber stamp, you simply stamp it in your special Malvern Hills letterboxing notebook, write a message in the guest notebook, you then MUST return the stamp and its contents into the box and return it to the EXACT location, ready for the next explorer to find. 

Join the 25 Letterboxing Club

Once you have collected all 25 letterboxes you will need to return to Malvern Tourist Information office to collect your well earned ’25 club badge’.

Rubber Stamp Designs

Malvern Hills District Council held a competition earlier in the year for local children to design the rubber stamps choosing from the 25 themes. All rubber stamps have all been designed by local children from ages 5-13 years. 

Project Partners

The project has been created by Malvern Hills District Council in partnership with Malvern Hills Trust and Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
