TheFisherFamily6: The cache is missing.
I do not know if it has been moved by the station staff due to the lockdown or if it has been muggled.
I am waiting on a reply from the station staff.
I really hope it has been removed for safe keeping otherwise someone has stolen it with multiple TB,s inside which really annoys me!

Geocache Description:

Located at Blue Anchor Station on the West Somerset Railway.

Hidden with the kind permission of the WSR and The Friends Of Blue Anchor Station.

Cache is named after the nickname of the WSR from the early days of preservation when the volunteers struggled to keep the railway going.


I volunteer on the Railway (Guard and Diesel Driver) so will be looking out for you!

Cache is a 1.1 litre clip top box with room for TB's and swag to swap.

This cache is one of a series of caches at stations on the West Somerset Railway. Total in series = 10.(GC759AW :Watchet is a different CO)

Blue Anchor is a quiet seaside village with a long sandy beach. At high tide the promenade is a popular destination for fishermen hoping for a large catch. Blue anchor gives stunning coastal views to Minehead and Exmoor and across the Bristol Channel to South Wales and as far as Weston-super-Mare.

History of Blue Anchor Station

Until Doniford Halt was constructed in the 1980s Blue Anchor was the ‘newest’ station on the Line being built in the 1870s. Opened after Washford, Dunster and Minehead when the original line was extended to Minehead the station was first known as Bradley Gate before reverting to a name whose explanation is a source of some debate. The station grew to its present form and size gradually as seaside holidays grew in popularity. In this early part of the 21st Century the population grows enormously as holiday makers arrive at the local park spread along the top of the esplanade that runs outside the station.

Please be carefull of the road.

Parking and refreshments are available at the station.

Please ensure the cache remains well hidden due to the high level of muggle activity. Please make sure it is fixed back correctly.

YOU DO NOT NEED TO GO ON TO THE RAILWAY LINE TO ACCESS THIS CACHE, PLEASE DO NOT TRESPASS ON THE RAILWAY LINE.
