37251: Archiving some of my older caches when they need maintenance. I placed this one at a time when a colleague could keep an eye on it. The signal box closed, got demolished and the general feeling towards caches on railway property (despite being allowed to remain if placed before the guidelines changed) means that the location is no longer viable for a different type of hide.

Thanks to all finders who have visited this cache in the 12 years or so it's been active.

Geocache Description:

A cache on level ground at Honiton Station

{From Wikipedia}
Honiton railway station serves the town of Honiton in East Devon, UK. The station is situated on a passing loop of the West of England Main Line. To the east is Honiton Tunnel and bank. The station is served and managed by South West Trains. As the line is not electrified only South West Trains' Diesel Multiple Units can travel down here - Class 159s and 158s.

Station building:
Honiton railway station has a modern station building, with a small shelter for cover when wet and windy. There are two platforms - with a bridge connecting both, a ticket machine and a car park. Also on platform 2 there is a small 'waiting room'. The original station was designed by the eminent architect Sir William Tite but was demolished around 1970, an act described as "architectural vandalism".


If arriving by train, or by car, head to the north side car park at Honiton Station.

You are looking for a key-safe magnetic container containing a small log book. You will need to bring your own writing device.

Beware of muggles.
