Geocache Description:

After the previous version of this SideTracked was archived, with kind permission from TheAdamss I have replaced it, so that Worthing station continues to be represented in this series. This version of the cache is hidden in a slightly different location.

Happy finding!


You are looking for a nano hidden not far from the station, in view of the tracks.
 
Worthing railway station is the main station serving the town of Worthing in West Sussex. The station and the majority of trains serving it are operated by Southern. The other operator is First Great Western. It is one of the main stations on the West Coastway Line; all timetabled trains stop here. The main station entrance is on the south side in Station Approach. The passenger car park is on the north side of the station in Southcourt Road and has a separate entrance to the station.

At times in its history the station has been named Worthing Central. This name is sometimes incorrectly still used, either out of habit or intentionally to distinguish it from West Worthing and East Worthing stations.

The subway which connects platforms 1&2 to platform 3 and out to the car park, flooded in July 2014 when torrential rain poured on the town. There is a plaque in the subway to the Teville Stream, which is now culverted in this part of town, and reads as follows:

'This historic stream has been utilised since as far back as 10,000 BC and its resources used in Roman and Medieval times with more recent activity in the 2nd World War as a line of defence. This stream travels through Worthing where depending on rainfall can be spotted in the subway here at Worthing Railway Station before joining the Broadwater Brook.'
