Geocache Description:

This 'Little Bridge crosses over The Avon Water North West of Brownhill Inclosure in the New Forest.

The Grid above is for the bridge.
It's a concrete footbridge nearby the Main A35 road.

There is a FC Car Park called Osmonds Bushes to the north (sometimes locked) but there is also room for three cars to park in the lay-by opposite the car park.

From the lay-by enter south through the trees, there is a stile here that you will need to cross, to get out into the open area, where the bridge is straight in front of you to the right of a ford.

Cross the bridge to far side and enter the trees to find cache approx 2 dozens paces in. You are looking for a small round tube container with an OFFICIAL GREEN GEOCACHE label on side, which just contains a new log book for you to sign, so please bring a pen with you,

The Holmsley Tearooms are nearby always worth a visit for a cuppa !!

br /> The Little Bridges series was started by Stanthews in 2009 to highlight small footbridges in remote parts of Wiltshire. Since then the series has been expanded by others all over the country and starting to spread fast, Damian from Winter Foxes has created and updates a list of cachers who has found 10 or more little bridges and can be found here, if you would like to add to the series, please contact Stan here and he will give you a number for your bridge, to qualify, the bridge must be a foot bridge too small for vehicles, please make sure your title exactly matches “Little Bridges # xx then name” including spaces so it will get picked up and added to Damian’s list.
