Geocache Description:

A SideTracked cache by Preston Park station in Brighton.

And now for the Wikepedia bit:

The London Brighton and South Coast Railway opened a new station named Preston, on 1 November 1869 to serve the growing parish of Preston, then north of the Brighton boundary. The station was enlarged and remodelled to its present design in 1879 during the construction of the spur line from the main line to Hove and the West Sussex coast line. The station was then renamed Preston Park although the nearby Preston Park did not exist until 1883.

In 1881 the notorious railway murderer Percy Lefroy Mapleton alighted at the station after having killed Isaac Frederick Gold and dumped his body in Balcombe tunnel. Lovely.

**********************The Cache********************

You are looking for a 35mm film canister placed on Woodside Avenue overlooking the Train Station. Parking is available all around the area so it should not be an issue. While placing the cache the GPS was playing up, so I would reccomend reading the clue in case the co-ords are out.
