Sidetracked - Pewsey Traditional Geocache
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
A flat key holder micro hidden outside the station. It is wheelchair accessible and probably almost just about doable from your car!
We have Motorway Mayhem. We have A-Road Anarchy (cos there aren’t many Motorways in Wales!). But what about public transport users?
SideTracked Caches are intended to provide quick Cache-and-dashes at Train Stations.
It is hoped this idea will spread across the country in the same way as the MMs….but if hiding one PLEASE BE SENSIBLE and remember that in this day and age, public transport is under greater scrutiny than ever before, so, although these caches should be quick and easy grabs, PLEASE don’t place a Cache where it could cause alarm!!!
About Pewsey Train Station
Pewsey railway station opened in 1862. It has two platforms connected by a footbridge, two waiting rooms, a ticket office and some toilets. The map on the wall in the West-bound platform shows the railway network in the South West before Dr Beeching had to wield his axe.
Until 2006 the big signs saying Pewsey were still painted in GWR colours.
The station is managed by First Great Western and is served by inter-city services from London to Exeter, Plymouth and the South West. The trains are Intercity 125 HST or Adelante units.
There is parking at the station, often full, and the commuters often park in nearby roads. For those not wanting to be longer than 20 minutes and not wanting to pay there are spaces available.
