About SideTracked - London Liverpool Street
London Liverpool Street was opened in 1874 as a replacement for the Great Eastern Railway's main London terminus, Bishopsgate station, which was subsequently converted into a goods yard. Liverpool Street was built as a dual-level station with an underground station opened in 1875 for the Metropolitan Railway, named Bishopsgate until 1909 when it was renamed Liverpool Street. An additional station called Bishopsgate (Low Level) existed on the mainline just outside of Liverpool Street from 1872 until 1916.
After falling into a state of disrepair, the station was modernised and rationalised between 1985 and 1992; at the same time the neighbouring Broad Street station was demolished and its lines redirected to Liverpool Street. As part of the project the Broadgate development was constructed on the Broad Street site. Queen Elizabeth II officially opened the modified station in December 1991.
With over 57 million passenger entries and exits in 2011-12, Liverpool Street is one of the busiest railway stations in the United Kingdom and is the third busiest in London after Waterloo and Victoria.
This cache is a 35mm black film pot. Bring a pen or pencil to sign the log.
PLEASE BE AWARE - This is one of the busiest places in London and has a very large number of muggles regardless of the time of day.
Extreme stealth is needed.
Please return the cache to exactly the same place it was found.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to the high buildings and narrow streets in this area, GPS can have very low accuracy.
