Can you find the six colourful numbered padlocks hidden around the town centre this summer?

Saffron Walden BID has launched the 'Unlock Saffron Walden' summer trail to search for the padlocks, which are presented on A6 card and displayed in shop and office windows.

The town will be divided into six different coloured areas, and each area will display the same coloured locks.

Only one of each colour will show a number, and every week the code and the location of the hidden numbers will change.

Participants can collect all six numbers to crack the code and open the treasure chest.


Completed forms will be entered into a prize draw for vouchers to spend in local businesses.

Shara Vickers, chair of the BID, said: "We want to unlock our town this summer and showcase all the fantastic shops, restaurants and businesses to residents and visitors.  Trails are a great way to generate footfall and are fun and easy to do.

"We hope people have lots of fun this summer exploring our beautiful town centre; make sure you wear comfy shoes as you will be doing a lot of walking!"

The trail runs until the end of August.
