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


Yardley Wood railway station serves the Yardley Wood area of Birmingham. Located on the North Warwickshire Line, the station, and all trains serving it, are operated by West Midlands Trains.

The station was opened by the Great Western Railway (GWR) on 1 July 1908, along with the line, and was originally known as Yardley Wood Platform.... Platform being a GWR term for a station which was intermediate between a halt and a station in importance and facilities; the suffix was later dropped. Unlike the previous and following stations on the line (Shirley and Hall Green) Yardley Wood was never provided with goods facilities. Most of the original station buildings are still intact.

The station staff houses for the Station Master and Sub-Station Master, built on Highfield Road by GWR in 1907, were in use until around the late 1970s but were sold off as private houses shortly after this time. They still stand next to the station on Highfield Road


The cache is a magnetic key safe hidden a short walk from the station.
