Geocache Description:

This cache is placed at the start of the old railway track from Hodnet which is now a nice flat walk that can be completed with bicycles, strollers or feet! Dogs are welcome as well.

The SideTracked series of Geocaches are Cache and Dashes for public transport users, which can be found at or near train stations, ex-train stations or near miniture railways. Please visit for more information on this series or if you would like to set your owned sidetracked cache.

This section of the Wellington to Nantwich railway line opened on 16th October 1867, it closed to passenger services on 9th September 1963 and fully closed 4 years later in 1967 almost exactly 100 years later thanks to Dr Beeching and his short sighted policies. The track was lifted and this was completed in 1970 ensuring its abandoned future forever.

I hope you enjoy these caches, we sure had fun thinking up ways to make the walk interesting!!
