The Nicky Line #7 Traditional Geocache
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
This is a series of 7 caches placed along the Nicky Line between
Hemel Hempstead and Harpenden. If you complete all 7, you will have
all the clues that can be used to locate a final bonus mystery
This cache is terrain 4 as the embankments near this cache can
be extremely slippery and steep. Please take great care when
hunting, and wear decent boots. If you take kids along, please keep
a careful eye on them.
The caches can be reached on mountain bikes, by foot, with buggies
and dogs are welcomed. There is no need at any point to climb over
the boundary of the line. Each cache contains a clue, the answer to
which you can find en route to the next cache, assuming you
progress them in numerical order. Each clue is on a laminated card
in the cache, please leave it there.
The Nicky Line was created as a branch rail link between Hemel
Hempstead and Harpenden, with the purpose of linking Hemel with
Luton to support the straw plait trade. It opened on 16th July 1877
and the last passenger train ran on 16th June 1947. The route has
been transformed into National Cycle route 57, and can be accessed
at multiple points.
When we set up the series we parked at N51 48.148 W000
23.226 which is a small free car park at approximately the mid
point of the line.
A free map of the Nicky Line footpath and cycle way is available by
phoning Dacorum Borough Council or further information can be found
The Nicky Line is extremely popular with cyclists, joggers and
walkers. Please be discrete when retrieving and replacing the
caches. Please rehide the caches as you found them.
