History

The station was opened by the Oxford, Worcester and Wolverhampton Railway in 1853.

There were a few interruptions to its generally uneventful history. Between 1854 and 1861 it served as a junction for Oxford-bound passengers changing from through trains between Worcestermarker and London Eustonmarker, for which rĂ´le a refreshment room was provided.

In January 1965 it was the destination for the funeral train of Sir Winston Churchill hauled by Battle of Britain Class locomotive No. 34051 Winston Churchill.

In January 1966 the station was unstaffed, following which the standard O.W.& W.R. wooden station building and goods shed were demolished.
