About Honor Oak Station


Honor Oak railway station was a station opened in December 1865 in Honor Oak, London by the London, Chatham and Dover Railway on the Crystal Palace and South London Junction Railway. The line was built to carry passengers to The Crystal Palace after its move from Hyde Park. The station was closed from 1 January 1917 to 1 March 1919 in the wartime economy measures, and again from 22 May 1944 to 4 March 1946. Passenger numbers declined after the Crystal Palace burnt down in 1936. Upon the line reopening in 1946 with the cost of repairing the war damage and declining passenger numbers the decision was taken to close the branch in 1954. The station was demolished soon after closure. No trace of the station remains and the site is occupied by housing although the old station masters house still exists on Canonbie Road - can you spot it?

At the initial coordinates you are looking for a small yellow square on the ground. On it the four numbers following BS are ABCD.
The cache can be found at N51 26. B (C+D) (A+D) W 0 03. A (B-A-C) (A-D)
