Geocache Description:


Winfrith Newburgh

The 352nd in a series of caches where a red telephone box
is in close proximity to a post box


Winfrith Newburgh is a village in the Purbeck district of Dorset, about 8 miles west of Wareham and 10 miles east of Dorchester. The ancient road from Dorchester to Wareham originally ran through the centre of the village, however this was replaced by a turnpike (now the A352 road) in the 18th century and the village is now south of the main road.

The name Winfrith derives from the river Win, which runs through the village. The Domesday Book of 1086 records it as Winfrode and says Bolla the priest held the manor. It was later granted to Robert de Neubourg, whose descendants were Lords of the Manor until the death of Sir Roger Newburgh in 1514. The Newburgh family is still part of the village’s name. The manor was purchased by the Weld family in 1641.

The iconic red telephone box and postbox stand outside of the village stores and post office in the centre of the village.
