Geocache Description:

A plastic container in a cammo bag that will hold coins and small TB's as well as small swaps, logbook and small pencil.

Oh Dr Beeching!
This station is the end of the Battlefield line and steam trains run to and from Shackerstone. The line and station are a reminder of rail travel 50+ years ago. A lovely area for a day out with the family or an evening stroll.

Bosworth battlefield and Ashby canal are within easy walking distance.

The area is popular at all times of the day and evening and you'll find a lot of dog walkers so a fair degree of stealth is required. There's a well worn track beginning to develop to this popular cache so please re-hide it well and use "stickoflage" as you find it.
The cache may get your GPS working overtime as there is some tree cover and you're in a cutting.

Parking - I believe there's a charge for the car park which closes at 4.30 pm. but there's space for about 4 vehicles outside the car park entrance when it's closed.

Toilets - On site open from 8.00am - 5.00pm.

Tearoom - Open when the trains are running.

Wheelchairs - Many useable pathways around but you'll not be able to access the cache.

Enjoy!
