English: Bramshaw Telegraph, also known as Telegraph Hill, was the location of a semaphore station built by the British Admiralty in the early nineteenth century, when there were fears of French invasion. It is located on the edge of the parish of Bramshaw on the B3078 road in the New Forest, England. It is one of the highest points in the New Forest at around 128 metres, but it is slightly lower than the summit of Pipers Wait 1 mile (1.5 km) to the east.
