Geocache Description:

The Cache is a small magnetic tube containing only a logbook so a pen is required.

Midsomer Norton railway station (originally Midsomer Norton and Welton, later Midsomer Norton Upper and finally Midsomer Norton South) was a station on the Somerset and Dorset Railway between Bath Green Park and Shepton Mallet. The station was immortalised in 1964 in the song "Slow Train" by Flanders and Swann. It closed in 1966 with the closure of the S&D under the Beeching Axe.

The station was on a fairly steep slope which took the railway up from the valley floor at Radstock into the Mendips, heading south to the summit of the line at Masbury. It had extensive gardens which were cultivated by the station staff and won many prizes. The station buildings are still well-preserved.

The station is now preserved by the Somerset and Dorset Railway Heritage Trust which has returned full size steam locomotives to the station in recent years.
