About Edgware Station
Edgware is a London Underground station that represents one of the two northern termini for the Northern Line.
Edgware has had a railway station since 1867, when it was a part of the London and North Eastern Railway. At this time, Edgware was no more than a small village surrounded by fields (photos of this can be found in the nearby church). In 1924 the current station was built to replace the old station, after a major extension of the then-named Charing Cross, Euston and Hampstead Railway brought the terminus from Golders Green to Edgware, in what is now the Northern Line. The opening of this new railway brought the desired effect of rapid urbanisation of the area, and new housing was quickly built on what had formerly been fields.
In 2016 the station experienced a total of 5.19 million passengers, serving commuters living across Northwest London.
The cache itself is a magnetic 2 ml centrifuge tube hidden a short walk from the station entrance.
