Geocache Description:

The Listed co-ordinates will take you to Cropredy Lock Garden.

Time 12.30 - 1.30pm

Place Cropredy Lock Garden

Date 10th August 2017


The Oxford and Rugby Railway had been built from Oxford northwards past Cropredy by 1852. It never reached Rugby, but at Fenny Compton it met the Birmingham and Oxford Junction Railway and thus became part of an important north-south main line. The Great Western Railway took over the O&RR before it was completed, and opened Cropredy railway station to serve the village. British Railways closed the station in 1956. The station was demolished and few traces remain. The railway remains open as part of the Chiltern Main Line.

The railway station was on station road which is close to the primary school in Cropredy

For safety reasons the event is not at what remains of the railway station but in the centre of the village at Cropredy Lock Garden.

Please feel free to bring a picnic and join me and my dogs for the usual geochat and tb swop. If you have visited any SideTracked caches it would be good to know which.

Please be aware Cropredy can be a busy place and parking can be very difficult. There is a one-way system in operation on this day of the year
