The 357th in a series of caches where a red telephone box
is in close proximity to a post box
Winterborne Kingston is a village in Dorset, 7 miles south of Blandford Forum and 2 miles north-east of Bere Regis. It is situated in a winterbourne valley on the edge of the dip slope of the Dorset Downs.
Winterborne Kingston consists of Kingston, which is two thirds of the western area of the parish, and Turberville (later called Abbots Court Farm) to the east. Still further east is the hamlet of Winterborne Muston. The River Winterborne which flows through the village is a tributary of the River Stour. As the name implies, the river tends to flow only in winter. Kingston means the King held land here and bourne is an old Dorset word meaning river; thus the name of the village can be translated as Kings Land by the Winter River.
The telephone box and postbox stand side by side outside of the village hall.
