Geocache Description:

This Cache is one of a series of traditional Caches along the route of the former Great Central Railway, which passed through Lutterworth.

The site of Lutterworth Station is now covered with a Housing Estate, as is the extensive Goods Yard that once existed. The Main Entrance to the Station was through an impressive Arch in the Bridge Side Wall, that led up a staircase onto the island platform.

The Arch is now bricked up, and the remaining bridge, No. 423, is in a very sorry state. You cannot access the old platforms as they have been fenced off, but there is a path going from one side, up and over to the other side of the bridge.

The area below the bridge is always muddy, you have been warned !

Pictures of the Entrance Archway and the Bridge in its former glory can be seen at (visit link)

Parking is very limited, although there are some residential streets nearby which may afford some considerate parking.

The Cache is a small novelty container, which contains the usual Logbook and Pencil. Please make sure it is well hidden, and the logbook is within the plastic container.

There is alot of tree cover at the location and that added to the bridge make GPS reception difficult, hence the obvious clue. Please report any DNF's
