Sidetracked - Motspur Park - Resurrected
How Geocaching Works
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
This cache has been resurrected for your enjoyment and is a follow on from the previous ST - Motspur Park which was archived in January 2011. Many thanks to the previous cache owner who was happy for me to resurrect it!
Motspur Park railway station is a suburban station in the London Borough of Merton in South London. The station is served by South West Trains, and is in Travelcard Zone 4. It is 6 stops and 22 minutes from Waterloo and 24 to 27 minutes travel to Waterloo.
Southbound destinations are Chessington South, Dorking and Guildford.
The station stands atop a railway embankment off a service road behind the parade of shops on West Barnes Lane. The shops and surrounding streets on both sides of the line are known as Motspur Park. There is also footpath access from Claremont Avenue on the western side.
The station is a single island platform reached by footbridge from either side of the track. The station retains its original London and South Western Railway buildings in the centre of the platform.
You are looking for a 35mm film canister and cache has been placed on a road that can get very busy at peak times and also when the level crossing is down. Extreme stealth is recommended!
And as always with roads, please be careful with young children.
