Just as the Drifters and Rolling Stones sang, our fourth Enjoy Felixstowe More! hand-painted stone has been discovered under the boardwalk, the walkway leading round Landguard Point.

Kathryn Jeffery and her family found the special stone today after clue two was published – and after several hours of hunting over the weekend in all weathers.

The stone was hidden under the boardwalk overlooking Harwich Harbour.

Kathryn said on the Enjoy Felixstowe More! Facebook page: “Two and Half hours Friday looking. One hour yesterday. Braved the weather today and we have found it.”

The family is delighted – and wins the £50 prize

The first clue, “Where ships pass in the night, steps lead nowhere, and nature thrives”, led everyone to Landguard with its varied landscape of fragile nature reserve, home to rare plants, migrating birds, and butterflies in summer, military relics, fort and port.

The second clue was: “Follow the anti-tank landing blocks to the end, take a stroll round the Point, and think of a song recorded by both the Drifters and the Rolling Stones.”

That walk was the boardwalk, past the ground-nesting birds, the old jetty and overlooking the harbour.

So there is now just one more stone to find in our game of stones.
