The Denton Treasure Quest

One of the most popular programmes on Radio Norfolk visited Denton on Sunday. It was the final edition for 2008 of “Treasure Quest”. The programme involves a reporter in the Radio Norfolk radio car solving a trail of clues to follow a route round the county. The car visits places of interest and seeks help from local residents. Having reached Hempnall the next clue was — “Del hunts the criminals here, like a weighty EastEnder, the Dixie holders of drink, sang of where the clue is”.

The answer, of course was Denton. One phone-in contributor was Heather Squirrell who told the story of Misery Corner. Arriving at the Chapel the car was met by a group of Dentonians, including Maureen and Nigel Seamons, who helped presenter Becky Betts solve the next clue — “Robbie and Frank have sung the way, sounds like a phonetic jump, you keep these at the board’s corner, not the old court, but inner”. The first line described the song ‘South of the Border’, so the team next travelled to Bungay Castle, having first checked that they were allowed to cross into Suffolk.

Further information about the programme is available from the Radio Norfolk Website.
