The return of Wanstead Park’s hidden painted stones


A series of painted stones have started to be found in Wanstead Park again.

“We started decorating and hiding stones here three years ago. I first saw painted stones in Broadstairs and thought it was a great idea. The thrill of the hunt! We used to hide some each week until the pandemic took over, and have just recently restarted,” said Christine Howett.

Once found, the stones can be kept or rehidden, and finders are encouraged to post a photo on the Wanstead Park Tea Hut Facebook group.
