Geocache Description:

Sidetracked Guildford

This is at least the 3rd iteration of this cache, I hope it will stay around for a while.

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. Its a distraction for the weary traveller, but anyone else can go and find it too. More Information can be found at the SideTracked Website


About Guildford Station


Guildford railway station is at one of three main railway junctions on the Portsmouth Direct Line and serves the town of Guildford in Surrey, England. It is 30.3 miles (48 km) from London Waterloo.
It provides an interchange station for two other railway lines: the North Downs Line northwards towards Reading, which has a connection to Aldershot; the same line eastwards to Redhill; and the New Guildford Line, the alternative route to Waterloo, via Cobham or Epsom.

In preparing this cache I have realised that there is absolutely no redeeming photogenic quality to Guildford station, never before has the opening paragraph of a sidetracked cache page been more correct.  There are nicer areas of Guildford and, if you are visiting the area, I'd recommend a quick dash up the cobbled high street and down the lanes between the old coaching inns, much better than here - really.

There follows the least offensive picture of Guildford station I could find in well over half an hour of web searches.

The Cache

You are looking for a camouflaged micro at ground level.  I consider this to be wheelchair accessible - but please let me know if I'm mistaken.  Quite a high muggle area but please be especially wary of the takeaway shop opposite.
