The 201st in a series of caches where a red telephone box
is in close proximity to a post box
Turnworth is a small village, situated on the Dorset Downs, 5 miles west of Blandford Forum. Thomas Hardy described Turnworth's position as being “stood in a hole, but the hole is full of beauty” and he used Turnworth House as the inspiration for Hintock House in his novel ‘The Woodlanders’. Turnworth House, demolished in the mid-1940s, was a large house of Jacobean design with the Parry-Okeden and Twinyhoe families being past residents.
A K6 style telephone box and a George VI-reign postbox, set into a brick pillar alongside, stand outside the old post office which closed in the late 1940s.
