LANGFORD AND KELMSCOTT STATION
This cache lies on the side of the old Witney to Fairford branch line which was operated by the Great Western railway between 1873 and 1962. A very comprehensive website with the history of this line can be found here. My thanks go to Martin Loader for the permission to use picture below and for the information on his site.
The station buildings are not here anymore, but a lampost as in the picture can still be seen. Despite its name this station was a mile from Langford, but two miles from Kelmscott. It was also 83 miles and 27 chains from Paddington station!
The cache is hidden along the bridleway from where the station used to be. It is a clic top container in a camo bag.
