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 Radyr Station

Radyr is a busy station on the outskirts of Cardiff on the lines to Merthyr Tydfil, Treherbert and Aberdare. It is also the terminus of the City line. The City line trains run to Coryton which is only three quarters of a mile away as the crow flies but 10 miles by train via Fairwater, Cardiff Central and Heath Low Level. A major redevelopment of the station is still ongoing and there is some disruption around the station.

Note for geocachers visiting by train: all local trains serve Radyr station as little as 5-10 minutes apart in both directions.

Note for geocachers visiting by car: there is now a 170 space park and ride car park just outside the station on De Clare Drive which is free to use and open to all.
