The Rufus Stone lies deep within the New Forest in Hampshire, set among some trees by a field. There are numerous walks within the woods from the car park nearby, and just down the road is the Sir Walter Tyrell Inn. Every winter storms batter the New Forest, occasionally bringing down trees and branches. This is a natural and needed part of the life cycle of the forest, as decaying matter releases nutrients back into the soil. In the meantime the fallen trees often provide natural climbing frames from both adults and children alike.
TRAVEL DIRECTIONS AND GETTING THERE
The Rufus stone is on Brook, a country lane that heads north from the A31. This junction is found a couple of miles south of where the A31 joins the M27, a little north of Stoney Cross.
