Geocache Description:


The single track branch line of the London Brighton and South Coast Railway between Three Bridges and Horsham was opened 14 February 1848. Crawley and Faygate were intermediate stations each with two platforms to enable trains to pass. The line was doubled throughout during 1862 to coincide with the extension of the railway from Horsham to the Arun Valley.

The first Crawley station was situated immediately adjacent to the main High Street, with station buildings on the north side of the railway line.

With the continued development of the New Town during the 1950s and 1960s it soon became clear that the station was too small, and a new statiogn building was opened 28 July 1968 at the current site. The new station was funded by a six-storey commercial development above.

The platforms and signalbox of the original station still survive. The former goods yard at Crawley was closed in the 1960s. It is located about a mile away from Crawley Town FC's Broadfield Stadium


The cache contains a log book at the time it was placed, but you will need to bring your own pen.

At many times of the day you may require extreme stealth to retrieve this without being muggled as this is a very busy area used by commuters and lots of pedestrians, so beware of the muggles!

Please ensure that you replace it carefully and in the very same way as otherwise it will get lost/waterlogged.

Congratulations to Sterling-Cache and curiouslass for FTF!
