About SideTracked Caches

This cache belongs to the SideTracked series. It is not designed to take you to a magical place with a breath taking view. It's a distraction for the weary traveller, but anyone else can go and find it too. More Information can be found at the SideTracked Website

An easy multi which starts at Goostrey Station platform and once solved it will take you on a short walk to the final. Be careful walking to the final as it is on country lane with no footpath and involves crossing to unpaved railway bridge. Please do not park on any private drives however tempting it may be!

To get the final co ordinates you need the following information.

The date on the keystone = A B C D

The first number of the date of the most improved station. = E

The number of letters in the first name of the Chief engineer = F

N 53 13. EB(C+D)

W 002 19. (A+C) (E+F) F
