Number Challenge

How many of you have ever played the number plate game (where you try to spot number plates with the next number)? We did as children and I tried to get my children into it, but the new number plate format doesn't work so well!

I decided to challenge myself to find numbers whilst out and about and photograph them. The only rules are:
  • no house numbers
  • no number plates
  • no consecutive numbers from same source

Here are this week's spots:

numbers 1-6

  1. a vehicle at the electricity board
  2. a pedestrian crossing pole
  3. National Trust poster
  4. footpath distance
  5. another National Trust poster
  6. road signpost
numbers 7-12

7.   weight limit
8.   price of a camping chair
9.   post box collection time
10. parking restriction end time
11. bus timetable
12. warning sign

numbers 13-14

13. travel time to walk to somewhere in Kendal
14. sample house number at local shop

I am still looking for a 15 having seen several whilst it wasn't the next in the sequence! If you fancy having a go it is really easy, who will be first to 100?


  1. We used to play the number plate game and keep it going for months - each keeping our own personal score. We got into the hundreds. Good luck with 15.

  2. I think we got to at least 200 and something!


I love it when people leave a message
