The Treasure of Mouse Castle

I saw a friend in town the other day, who lives close to Mouse Castle, right on a public footpath. It's not normally a footpath that gets much use, but in the last week or so her family has been watching as hordes of eager treasure seekers head up to the woods in search of gold topped glass jars full of cash. And that's only one entrance to the woods, which are owned by the Woodland Trust, and so open to the public.
Three young men who followed the clues to the treasure were interviewed in the Hereford Times this week - they came from the Rhondda and Cardiff to search for the £1,000 prize.
Apparently, the jars were left in the wood by an American millionaire, as part of a Twitter treasure hunt called Hidden Cash. They have all now been found.
