SideTracked - Shanklin IOW Traditional Geocache

This cache has been archived.

The Klever Boys: With regret we think it's time to archive this one as it's becoming increasingly high maintenance. The cache has been out there over 10 years with 1000+ finders and was the first SideTracked cache to be placed off mainland Britain (according to BikerMel who kindly sent us a special SideTracked geocoin in recognition).

Thanks to all those who have visited.

Geocache Description:

Welcome to the first SideTracked cache hidden on The Isle of Wight!

About SideTracked

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 railway stations.

About The Cache

Only a very short distance from the station entrance, you are looking for a magnetically attached silver cylinder (about 1½ inches long), and you will need to bring along your own pen/pencil

For those arriving by car, parking is very close too, making this an ideal cache & dash. The cache should be ok for wheelchair users as long as you are able to lean down to within 10 inches of ground level (assuming the cache has been replaced where we originally left it!).

The cache is not located on the metal cabinets and the clue(s) have been made fairly specific to make this an easy find, so please use them rather than hunting too far afield, or drawing attention to yourself.

Many thanks to Richard and Ann who will help maintain the cache on the occasions that we're not on the Island.
