Geocache Description:


This is a 35mm micro located near Crawley Station where the old station once stood. This is a continuation of the SideTracked series.


Crawley Station

The single track branch line of the London Brighton and South Coast Railway between Three Bridges and Horsham was opened 14 February 1848. Crawley and Faygate were intermediate stations each with two platforms to enable trains to pass. The line was doubled throughout during 1862 to co-incide with the extension of the railway from Horsham to the Arun Valley.

The first Crawley station was situated immediately adjacent to the main High Street, with station buildings on the north side of the railway line.

With the continued development of the New Town during the 1950s and 1960s it soon became clear that the station was too small, and a new station building opened in 1968 at the current site. The platforms and signal box of the original station still survive, the cache is placed so that you view them.

The cache contains a log book only, you will need to bring a pen or pencil with you to sign it.

There is a strong likelihood that muggles will be around at most times of the day so extreme stealth maybe a necessity and please could you replace this carefully and in the same place as where you found it.
