SideTracked - Bicester North Traditional Geocache
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
A crafty micro-sized container just down the road from this busy station.
It is quite unusual for a town the size of Bicester to have two railway stations. This one, Bicester North, is the busier and larger of the two, and is a stop on the Birmingham to London line. It was opened in July 1910 as a GWR station, and is now operated by Chiltern Railways.
There has been a good deal of redevelopment work at this station over the past couple of years to help cope with not only the upgrading of the line for a faster service, but also the very significant increase in passenger numbers, and cars parking at the station. At the time of placing this cache there was continued development, with the footbridge being upgraded, though this should be completed soon.
This a very busy station, being a popular London commuter route, though a little quieter in the evenings and weekend. Accordingly, expect lots of muggles in the vicinity, and although GZ is not in a main throughfare, stealth will be required when searching for this cache. It is situated near the approach road, and it's possible to walk almost right up to the cache site, though there are some steps. You are looking for a micro-sized container, which blends in almost perfectly with the surrounding area. With this in mind please replace EXACTLY where found, and take care when undoing the container. There is no writing implement, so please bring a pen or pencil.
