Geocache Description:

Somerfords Series #17.  A rail-related micro hidden at the entrance to the former Little Somerford Station. You will need to provide your own log signing implement. Parking is available adjacent to the cache.

Not much remaining to suggest there was ever a station here.  There are a pair of cast iron gate posts dated 1902.  And of course there are trains still, but they pass by at speed on the London to Bristol, South Wales and SW England main line.  The station was opened in 1903 and closed to passengers in 1961 and to goods traffic in 1963.  Little Somerford was the junction for the Malmesbury branch line which operated between 1933 and 1962. If you continue on the series you will cross the former branch line between caches SS19 and SS20.

See For Starters : SS1 for series information including alternative suggested parking.

This cache belongs to the SideTracked series. More Information can be found at the SideTracked Website.
