If you are looking for a fun way of encouraging youngsters to explore the countryside, take a look at 12 new Treasure Trails for Suffolk.

Written by Dave Senior, Treasure Trails offer an imaginative and fun way to explore and learn about the local area and its history, at £6.99 each.

You can choose between three themes; a Treasure Hunt, a Spy Mission or a Murder Mystery. You then follow an easy route and answer a series of clues involving some interesting, scenic and historical sights along the way to find the answers.

There is a murder mystery in Bury St Edmunds and a spy mission in Lavenhem, both taking about two hours.

The new Suffolk Trails will see also you looking to solve The Mystery of Rosie Lee’s Last Cuppa in Southwold or attempting to thwart disgruntled jockey Rhoda Loser’s evil plan to disrupt horseracing in Newmarket.

Other Trails cover Aldeburgh, Beccles, Eye, Framlingham and Hadleigh whilst a combined driving and walking trail explores Walberswick, Dunwich and Thorpeness.

Treasure Trails avereage two miles long and are neat A5 booklets that are light and easy to carry.
