Eye patch? Check! Parrot on shoulder? Check! You’re all ready for a jaunt on the Maldon Treasure Hunt Trail where cracking codes and solving clues will get you ever closer to the long, lost loot.

Before anyone can get their hands on the (fictional) treasure, download your route PDF. It’ll lead you towards the clues which are your guiding lights and are hidden high and low around the town. You’ll find them tucked away on statues and signs so eagle eyes at the ready, everyone!

Maldon is one of the oldest towns in England so there are tonnes of nooks and crannies to discover. Just make sure you don’t miss the beautiful scenery and local treasures, like the 15th-century Moot House and sensory gardens. The trail should take around 2.5 hours to complete, but since when were pirates punctual?
