Hopefully the first clue in the hunt for the fourth of our Enjoy Felixstowe More! hand-painted stones has taken everyone to Landguard.

Several people have already been out about on the peninsula, hunting on the nature reserve, among the old war-time defences, along the Butts (which were once used as a shooting range) and around Landguard Fort, the Viewing Area and cafe.

But no-one has yet has claimed the £50 prize – and the game of stones is still on.

The first clue was:

Where ships pass in the night, steps lead nowhere, and nature thrives.

More than 4,000 ships pass Landguard a year, all times of the day and tide. The steps are those which appear to rise to nowhere, a war-time relic, while nature is all around.

So with everyone now scouring Landguard, here is clue two:

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.

Landguard is a great place to explore with so much history and nature – shame about the weather today, especially as there is a living history pirate family fun weekend taking place at the fort.

The nature reserve is fascinating, too – home to some rare plants, including the aptly-named stinking goosefoot, and migrating birds.

If you find the stone, please call 01473 324773, and leave your details, including phone number, to claim the £50 prize.

There will be five stones to find in total.

Let us know how you get on with stone 4 – join in the conversation and the fun on the Enjoy More Felixstowe! Facebook page.
