Geocache Description:

A short offset multi involving a round trip of approx 3/4 of a mile along a fairly level path with no gates or stiles.

Horsebridge station is six miles north of Romsey alongside the River Test in the Test Valley.

It was opened in 1865 by the London and South Western Railway as part of the 'Sprat and Winkle' line between Romsey and Andover after they took over the course of the canal along this section. Today sees the station restored to its former glory, complete with signalbox, a carriage and some signals.

The coordinates given will take you to the suggested parking for this multi.
Once here, look for a signpost where you will need to collect some information;

Totton = AB miles.
Inkpen Beacon = CD miles.
John O' Gaunt Inn phone number = 01794 3883EF (sign is currently missing so E=9 and F=4).

Now you will have to work out the coordinates for the cache location using this formula;
N51 04.AC(E-D)
W001 30.D(B-C-A)(F+A)

Good luck!
