About SideTracked Caches
We have Motorway Mayhem. We have A-Road Anarchy ('cos there aren’t many Motorways in Wales). But what about public transport users? SideTracked caches are intended to provide quick Cache-and-Dashes at Train Stations. It is hoped this idea will spread across the country in the same way as the MMs…. If hiding one PLEASE BE SENSIBLE and remember that in this day and age, public transport is under greater scrutiny than ever before, so, although these caches should be quick and easy grabs, PLEASE don’t place a Cache where it could cause alarm. For more information on SideTracked Caches, please visit SideTracked.
More Information can be found at the SideTracked Website
About Cheltenham Spa (Malvern Road)
Cheltenham Spa (Malvern Road) railway station is a former station in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire on the old Cheltenham to Stratford upon Avon GWR line. It was opened on 30th March 1908 and it closed on 3rd January 1966 and is now part of the Honeybourne line footpath.
The station itself had an island platform that was accessed via a covered footbridge from the ticket office. The station also had a substantial goods yard which is now part of the building merchants yard.
Very little remains of the former station apart from a few walls below where the ticket office was. There is a former train shed still standing and is used by the builders merchants as a warehouse, also on the entrance gates of the building merchants the original GWR gates can still be seen.
You are looking for a small magnetic container with log only so please bring your own pen/pencil. Tweezers will be needed. The area is busy with muggles using the footpath and can be busy during school opening hours. Parking is available very close to the cache.
