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.

About The Cache


A simple cache located near the station, suitable for cachers using public transport as well as those with their own transport.
You are looking for a small camouflaged container.
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.

This is a high muggle area, so please be careful when finding the cache. Please replace exactly as found. Thank you.

Happy caching.
