RNLI Appledore Guild have come up with a new idea, to encourage you to have some fun, to see a little more of the village, and to help us do
some fund raising. A Treasure Hunt around Appledore village.


There are two separate sets of clues one Labelled Adults and the other Youngsters.


Both follow exactly the same route, but the clues are different.


It takes around 60 minutes to complete, so it is an opportunity for all family members to have a go!

  • the Appledore Quay Gift Shop & Gallery , or
  • by email from This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., stating whether you wish the Adult or Youngsters set of clues or
