About SideTracked Caches

This cache belongs to the SideTracked series. It is not designed to take you to a magical place with a breathtaking view. It is a distraction for the weary traveller, but anyone else can go and find it too! For more information on the SideTracked Series please click here.

The Station

Farnborough Main Station, opened in 1838, is on the London Waterloo Line, within about 40 minutes travel time to our Capital City. This makes Farnborough a commuter town - or bedroom/dormitory community. The station has just been refurbished (2010-2011) to provide lifts, a more modern pedestrian overpass to and from the London-bound trains, more extensive cycle lock-ups and better auto access. The main transfer points near Farnborough on the line are at Basingstoke, to the South, and Woking, to the North. Farnborough Main is quite busy during rush hours, and during the Farnborough Airshow, held every Summer in even-numbered years. Several bus lines also stop at the station, should you need to hop on one. To see pictures of Farnborough Main Station spanning the years since its opening, please go to Historic Farnborough's Farnborough Station page.

The Cache

You are looking for a nano hidden close to Farnborough Main Railway Station. The road outside the station can get very busy, so please keep an eye on mini-cachers and geodogs. This should be an easy park and grab for those not travelling by rail. The cache site is wheelchair accessible, however wheelchair users may need assistance to reach the cache in its hiding place.

Stealth is required! Please use extreme caution if attempting this cache during commuter rush hours. Additionally, the cache is NOT on private land - please do not trespass or annoy any nearby residents!

Congratulations, Magicmanmatt on your First to Find!
