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.
 

About SideTracked - Temple

 

Temple is served by the District (green) and Circle (yellow) lines, which is situated in the southwest of the area, between Temple Place and the Victoria Embankment. There is also a Temple Pier on the Victoria Embankment, situated near the Tube station immediately upstream of the Westminster-City of London boundary; HQS Wellington is permanently moored there.

The Temple was originally the precinct of the Knights Templar whose Temple Church was named in honour of Solomon's Temple in Jerusalem. The Knights had two halls, whose modern successors are the Middle Temple Hall and the Inner Temple Hall.  Only the Inner Temple Hall preserves elements of the medieval hall on the site, however (namely, the medieval Buttery).
 
The Royal Courts of Justice are just to the north and Temple tube station is located to the west in the City of Westminster. The wider Temple area is roughly bound by the River Thames (the Victoria Embankment) to the south, Surrey Street to the west, Strand and Fleet Street to the north, and Carmelite Street and Whitefriars Street to the east.
 
It contains many barristers' chambers, solicitors' offices, as well as some notable legal institutions such as the Employment Appeal Tribunal. The International Institute for Strategic Studies has its headquarters at Arundel House.

The Cache

 

This cache is a 35mm film pot. Bring a pen or pencil to sign the log.

PLEASE BE AWARE - This can be a busy spot with people coming and going.

Extreme stealth is needed.

Please return the cache to exactly the same place it was found, and make sure it's tucked in out of sight.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the high buildings and narrow streets in this area, GPS can have very low accuracy.

Many Thanks to my good friend Terrapintim for helping me look after this cache.
