Really SideTracked - Whitegate
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
A cache placed at the old Whitegate Railway Station. The Whitegate railway line carried salt for almost 100 years, from the mines along the west bank of the River Weaver up to Cuddington where it joined the Chester - Manchester line. The line finally closed in 1966 and today you can enjoy a picnic at Whitegate Station, the only station along the way.
Shady wooded cuttings contrast with sunny open embankments, offering spectacular views over the Cheshire countryside. Thanks to the Cheshire West and Chester Council for permission to place to this cache. Parking is right next to the cache. The car park also has wc's as well. The cache is in a round small tupperware box with a logbook and swaps.
