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

Somerset Road railway station was a railway station in Edgbaston, Birmingham, on the Midland Railway's Birmingham West Suburban Railway. The station had two platforms and was located in a cutting. It was opened in 1876, and closed in 1930 due to lack of patronage.

There are virtually no remains of the station, the only one being a bricked up entrance on the Somerset Road bridge over the present Cross-City Line, between the University railway station and Five Ways railway station. This can be seen on the far side of the road from the cache.
