A late jar surprise

4 years on, this project still has the capacity to surprise me. Back in April of this year, one of the jars was found and reported for a second time. Yep, jars are still very occasionally turning up in the wild!

Jar No 272

Jar No 272
Kirsty Hall: Jar No 272, Sept 2011

If you collected a jar, what motivated you to pick it up? (optional)::

I’ve seen or collected a jar: Seen a jar

Number on lid of jar: 272

Your name (optional): : Oli Brown

Date jar found (optional): 16/04/2015

Where is the jar now? (optional): same place

Congrats on your find, Oli Brown, they’re incredibly rare now.

So there you go, Jar 272 is ‘in the same place’ apparently. Unfortunately, since I don’t know where the first finder, Rupert Small, moved it to, I have no idea where that place actually is! But in his original report, Rupert mentions the postcode BS8 1QT, so it may well be in that area. From Google maps, that postcode is around The Triangle in Clifton. Happy hunting, Bristol jar fans.
