** UPDATE **
I have replaced and moved this cache after the problems I had before. It is still a small cache near Bedhampton Train Station. Although the station itself is not very busy, the area around is! Pen and stealth will be required.
Taken from Wikipedia:
Bedhampton railway station serves the former village of Bedhampton, now a suburb lying a mile west of the centre of Havant, in Hampshire, England.
Opened in 1906 as "Bedhampton Halt", the station was at first staffed separately but in the late 1940s it came under the control of Havant and since then it has been manned only part-time: a ticket office on Platform 2 (Portsmouth bound) is staffed during the peak morning rush hour.
In August 2007 the old platform surfaces were resurfaced, new shelters and railway gates added, and Platform 1 (Havant bound) was extended to make it suitable for longer trains.
The station is located on a section of line which is common to the Portsmouth Direct Line from London (Waterloo) to Portsmouth (Portsmouth Harbour) and the West Coastway Line from Brighton to Southampton.
Although the nearest station eastward is Cosham, until 2007 there were no direct services calling at both Cosham and Bedhampton. Passengers between these two stations had to travel to Hilsea, the next station south on the Portsmouth line, and change trains there. Today South West Trains operate a very limited late evening service between the two stations.
