About Colindale Station

Colindale is a London Underground station on the Edgware Branch of the Northern Line, primarily serving commuters living in the area.

The station was opened in 1924 following a major extension that brought the terminus of what is now the Northern Line from Golders Green to Edgware. At the time, the area around Colindale was no more than a small collection of rural houses serving both the nearby Central London Sick Asylum (opened in 1898), and the Hendon Aerodrome, one of the most important RAF bases during the First World War, and the site of many aviation breakthroughs in the early 20th century. The creation of the rail station brought about the intended consequence of rapid urbanisation of the area.

Nowadays the station serves over 6 million passengers a year, with that number rising rapidly. The majority of that number are made up of commuters working in central London, and as the area is currently undergoing significant redevelopment with many new homes and flats being built, this number is expected to rise in the future. The station also serves tourists visiting the RAF Museum, situated on the site of the former Hendon Aerodrome.

The cache itself is a small magnetic 2 ml centrifuge tube, hidden from view of passers by.
