Geocache Description:


Pimperne

The 345th in a series of caches where a red telephone box
is in close proximity to a post box


Pimperne is a village in north Dorset, situated on Cranborne Chase, 2 miles north-east of the town of Blandford Forum.

The first records of Pimperne go back to the Domesday Book in the late 11th century, where it is recorded as "Pinpre", but it is believed that the village goes back to Anglo-Saxon times and a Bronze Age settlement was discovered in the barrows to the north of the village. A house found in this has been used as the model for all Bronze Age houses, including the reconstruction at Butser Ancient Farm, Hampshire.

The telephone box and postbox stand a few feet from each other in Church Road on the outskirts of the village.
