A Geocaching event at the front of Rushden railway station, Thursday 14th April, 1pm to 1.30pm.
Rushden railway station opened late in railway terms in 1894 on the 1st May. The station was situated on the new Midland Railway branch line from Wellingborough, which is on the mainline, to Higham Ferrers. Rushden at the time was a thriving town that produced shoes and other leather products. The new railway helped to transport those goods and passengers. Passenger services ceased on the 15th June 1959 and finally closed to goods traffic ten years later on the 1st September. Today the station is owned by the Rushden Historic Transport Society, they holds regular events for members and to the general public.
Meet the host at the front of the station for half an hour for a geochat and exchange of Trackables. You are welcome to join the host after the caching event inside the station at the bar, which will be open for drinks and snacks. If sunny, we can enjoy the view of the preserved trains from the platform.
