hofficoffi: I placed this cache near my mother's house and as they are moving out of the area I will simultaneously lose my local maintenance and my reason to visit here on a regular basis. Unfortunately my two caches in this part of the world will need to be archived.

The container has been removed and the space is available for others to place a cache.

About Wisbech St Mary Station

Wisbech St Mary railway station was a station on the Midland and Great Northern Joint Railway line between Wisbech and Peterborough.  The station was immediately between Wisbech North and Murrow East Stations

I was visiting relatives in Wisbech St Mary in Station Drive which joins Station Road which in turn is close to Beechings Close.  As there is no station or train line in Wisbech St Mary I was wondering about the history so I did a bit of digging.  This station was closed in 1959 a while before Dr Richard Beeching published his reports which started the large scale closures of stations and lines.  I'd find it odd to name a road near a closed station after Beeching so am unsure if Beechings Close is named after Dr Beeching - could anyone let me know and I'll update the cache page.
