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 train stations. They should be placed where it will not cause alarm, as in this day and age, public transport is under greater scrutiny than ever before.

For more information on SideTracked Caches, please visit the
SideTracked website.

Local information

Finstock is situated 15 miles north west of Oxford in the beautiful Evenlode Valley, surrounded by glorious Cotswold countryside and the historic towns of Woodstock, Burford and Chipping Norton.

To the north west of Finstock lies the remainder of the ancient Wychwood Forest, part of which now makes up the estate of Cornbury Park. Monarchs once exercised their exclusive hunting rights in the forest. Today, deer and other wildlife can still be spotted from public footpaths that border the Park.

Footpaths in the surrounding area offer walks through stunning scenery, all within the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The quiet country lanes and roads in the Wychwood area are also popular with cyclists and horse riders.

The station is just a platform with a shelter with very few trains stopping here.

Cache information

This is a cache and dash as there is parking very close to the cache but be mindful that there is a bus stop there.

If you have geokids with you, please be careful that you are next to a road. You are looking for a small cache that can take small trackables.
