Geocache Description:

We have Motorway Mayhem and we have A-Road Anarchy. Now a series for public transport users! SideTracked Caches are intended to provide quick cache-and-dashes at train stations.

Bexhill Station is on the main Hastings to Portsmouth (Southern) line.

The station is a Grade II listed building, and a lavish restoration project to the platform canopies and to the booking hall was finally completed in the summer of 2008. The station is also accredited as part of the Department for Transport's Secure Stations scheme, with a digital CCTV system in place. The station is staffed during the daytime but not late in the evenings.

Historically, Bexhill was the original name of Bexhill West, on a branch from the Hastings Line at Crowhurst, providing direct services north to London. The station and line closed in 1964. The station known today as Bexhill was previously known as Bexhill Central. The station had a moment of glory in December 1911, when the platform was especially lengthened to accommodate the funeral train of Nripendra Narayan, the Maharaja of Cooch Behar, as a result of which for many years it had the longest platform in England outside London.
