Geocache Description:

Quick cache and dash at Chathill station, the cache is not placed within the railway grounds. Parking is available off road near the cache.

Chathill railway station is a railway station that serves the village of Chathill in Northumberland, England, and the nearby villages of Seahouses, Embleton, Bamburgh and Belford.
Although located on the East Coast Main Line, the station is served by just two arrivals and departures, Mondays to Saturdays, providing commuting links to and from Newcastle upon Tyne. The services are operated by Northern Rail, which also manages the station. As Chathill is the northern terminus of these services and the Northern Rail network, there are no direct connections between Chathill and stations further north (the Diesel Multiple Unit used on these services runs empty northwards from here to Belford loop to reverse before returning to take up its southbound working).
Because of the limited service, an easement permits passengers wishing to travel northbound from Chathill or from the north to Chathill may double back via Alnmouth.
Between 1898 and 1951, Chathill was the southwestern terminus of the North Sunderland Railway. Independent until its takeover by the LNER in 1939, it formed a standard gauge rail link to the fishing village of Seahouses until its closure in 1951 (Wright, 1988).
