Nether Edge is an area with a lot of interesting things to see. But do you know where to find them? Where can you see a black post box? A bell on top of a building? A wooden dragon?
Our I-Spy quiz has 30 pictures and a map with 30 numbers. It’s divided into three areas so you can do one section at a time. All you have to do is find the things in the pictures, match them with numbers and complete the quiz.
No prizes, just good fun and you might find out all sorts of things about Nether Edge that you didn’t know before. Collect your ISPY quiz from local shops including The Studio and Wickwire.
Answers will be published in the October issue of EDGE and online at the beginning of October.
Thanks to John Scholey for the wonderful photographs!
