FOOTSTEPS ON THE TEIGN
Da Vinci Code meets National Treasure, with a bit of Monty Python thrown in as our French heroine Françoise and her friend Jack are pursued by secret societies, the KJB, the Vatican, MI6 and always those dammed French, as they all search for a secret that has lain hidden for centuries and will change the known world when it is found. In a tale of mystery and suspense, a pinch of romance and with lots of fun, Davey J Ashfeld takes us across the stunning West County of England and Paris in a kaleidoscope of historical truth and modern day conspiracy. The story unravels to its sensational ending with a cast of characters that include Knights Templar’s, Kings and Popes, Holy Roman Emperors, Jesus Christ and Mary Magdalene. Woven in every chapter are modern day West County smugglers, spies, villains and pirates masquerading as normal people in the bars and work places on the River Teign. Will the charming French lady Françoise survive her pursuers and find and solve the mystery of what her ancestor lost in Teignmouth three centuries ago and why he was mad enough to go there in the first place? Well read the book and find out.
Or you can come to beautiful Teignmouth any day to meet the crazy cast and take part in a real time charity treasure hunt to find what Françoise missed.
Book available on Amazon bookstore, all e book platforms, selected book stores and local traders and tourist locations in Teignbridge.
TREASURE TRAIL AND CLUE HOLDERS
The clues to the location of the Holy Grail are placed in the venues below. You must go there and locate and solve the clue which will be attached to the bottom of a TEIGN TREASURE TRAIL AIMS charity box. Donations are welcome for the clue. A drink or two may well help sustain you. You must go to each clue holder to solve the clues. There is no particular order. The clues will add up to a four figure code which will open the TREASURE CHEST. The final resting point of the TREASURE CHEST will be in THE TEIGNMOUTH AND SHALDON HERITAGE CENTRE https://www.teignheritage.org.uk/during opening hours. If you arrive at the museum out of hours then Gareth at THE KING’S HEAD next to it has a duplicate TREASURE CHEST. Here you will find the location of the Holy Grail and also a small prize.
