About Salisbury Station
There has been a railway station in Salisbury since the London and South Western Railway (LSWR) opened a branch line from Southampton in 1847. A further branch line was added from Westbury by the Great Western Railway (GWR) in 1856 and in 1857 LSWR extended their main line from London to Andover.
The current station building was completed in 1902 and just 4 years later the station was the scene of a derailment that killed 24 passengers and 4 railwaymen. As a result of the crash, all trains were required to stop at Salisbury station from that point onwards. The speed limit on the curve east of Salisbury was also reduced to 15mph, a limit still effective today. There is a memorial tablet to the 28 dead (including the driver, two firemen and the guard) in Salisbury Cathedral.

Please note the cache is NOT located within the station boundary and must be accessed from Churchfields Road. The close neighbors are aware of the cache, but there is no need to enter their property, so please do not do so.
