Mission Information

Only the most determined explorers will attempt and complete this mission!


There is a saying that ‘a picture is worth a thousand words’. Visit a viewpoint and ask different visitors to give you as many words as a possible to describe the view. Don't worry if you don't reach 1 000!


Tally up the words and make a ‘word cloud’ image by drawing the different words larger the more times they were said. You could use Wordle to make your cloud online (we're not responsible for what appears on their site). Share your cloud with us to unlock your points. 

How well does your word cloud represent the view? Is there anything missing? Should anything be smaller or larger?

Find your nearest Ordnance Survey located viewpoint.

Mission Risk: Medium
Medium. Keep your wits about you, anything could happen.Always get permission before talking to people you don't know. Exploring in a team of three is always a good idea. It's not only safer, but much easier to do tricky missions like this one.
