Treasure hunters picked up a map from the parish hall before setting off on a trail around the village to search for questions and vie for the prize.

The event raised £700 for Oxfam and revellers celebrated the end of the event with hot dogs and refreshments.

Paul Shand, who organised the event, is also running the London Marathon for the cause on Sunday and has so far raised £1,500.
