We’ve been asking you, our local Agents, shout loud and proud about the place you call home!
From bizarre benches to magical murals, obscure oddities to strange stories, every corner of the UK has its hidden treasures and tales to tell.
We always try to bring you the best of these via our Trail routes, Clues and fact snippets. But we know there’s so much more out there that only those who live in a place will know about.
That’s why we tasked YOU with showing us all the reasons that you Love Where You Live by seeking out and sharing your local wonders, quirks and curiosities!
Love Where You Live: All MISSIONS Complete!
You’ve worked really hard on your assignments over the last six weeks, local Agents; you’ve done an amazing job of showing us why you Love Where You Live!
