Geocache Description:

The cache is a NANO, sorry, but hopefully will be easily found by you whereas muggles will not see it. When re-positioned on 17th March 2011 the new location is not visible from the ticket office so should make it easier to grab. Cache was replaced on 19th July 2015 in a slightly different location but the puzzle stayed the same.

Obviously as a Nano it contains just a log sheet so please bring a pen.


The co-ordinates given are not the cache, but the bus stop just outside the station. The cache is a short walk away.

A quick puzzle to exercise the grey cells a little, but it should be pretty simple.
The cache co-ordinates are;
N52 28.abc
W1 47.def

e = Second digit of the number of steps leading down to each platform -1
f = g x2, where g is "The station was opened on 1st May 19g9

The area is likely to be very busy so a great deal of stealth will be required at times. Indeed at certain times it may be virtually impossible, however when placed it was fairly quiet.
