Super spies are needed to unravel the truth, in what head office are calling Mission Black Swan. Named for the sooty inhabitants of the local brook, the Dawlish Spy Mission Treasure Trail could get just as dark… Good luck!

The mission might be named after one but there’s no room for bird brains here! You’ll need to crack codes and solve clues at speed, something which you couldn’t do without your route PDF. It’s packed with tips leading you to clues craftily disguised on signposts, monuments and more.

Dawlish is famous for the black swans which call the brook home so don’t miss a chance to spot them. At around 2 hours to complete, the trail should give you plenty of time to explore and tackle the steep climb which stands between you and the truth. It’s well worth it though for the stunning bird’s eye view over the surrounding hills.
