The New Forest was created by William the Conqueror as an area where deer could be hunted. The medieval meaning of the word Forest was that of a hunting area where the beasts of the chase could run free. The New Forest is a mixed environment of woodland pasture, heaths, bogs, coppices and plantations. Turf Hill Inclosure is a conifer plantation, of which a large part was blown down by the big storm of 1990, and that area has now been restored to open land.

This cache is hidden under the agreement between the Geocaching Association of Great Britain and the Forestry Commission in the New Forest. Please respect the terms of the agreement. Park only at the recommended place, or at any other marked car park. Do not do this cache, or any cache in the New Forest, at night.
I suggest you park in Turf Hill car park, where you will find yourself very near the co-ords at the top of the page. From there the total walk is about half a mile each way on mostly level ground.
At the given co-ords you will find a dark green metal sign. The first year on the sign will give you ABCD. At the start of the second column is a five character Roman numeral in brackets. Written in the usual way it will give you EF.
The container itself is at:
N 50 57.(D+E)(B-F)(C+A)
W 001 4D.(F-E)(F+D)(A+D+E)
You're looking for a camouflaged 1.2 litre lock and lock box.
