Welcome to Crewe

The station opened in 1837 and is one of the most historically significant railway stations in the world.

Crewe station is a major junction on the West Coast Mainline and serves as a rail gateway for North West England. It is 158 miles North of London Euston and 243 miles south of Glasgow Central. It is located at the point where the lines to Manchester and North Wales diverge from this route, and is the last major station before the branch to Liverpool diverges. It is also served by lines to Stoke and Shrewsbury.

Crewe railway station has twelve platforms and a modern passenger entrance containing a bookshop and ticket office. Passengers access the platforms via a footbridge, stairs and lifts.

The platform buildings dating from the 19th century contain two bookshops, bars, buffets and waiting rooms. The last major expenditure on the station was in 1985 when the track layout was remodelled and station facilities updated.

The cache is located a short walk from the station front.

The container is a nano so you will need to bring your own writing implement.

Happy SideTracking!
