History

The Great Western Railway built the Oxfordmarker - Banburymarker section of the Oxford and Rugby Railway between 1845 and 1850. However, the GWR did not open a station at King's Sutton station until 1872. By 1881 the arrival of the Banbury and Cheltenham Direct Railway via Chipping Nortonmarker had made King's Sutton a junction. British Railways withdrew passenger services between King's Sutton and Chipping Norton in 1951 and closed the B&CDR line to freight traffic in 1964. The station was reduced to an unstaffed halt from 2 November 1964.

BR removed King's Sutton station footbridge in the 1960s. A local campaign group won a review to have the passenger bridge reinstated by 2005. In 2007 the new bridge was erected and the old passenger shelter on the "up" platform was replaced by a new plastic and metal 'bus-shelter' style one.

A late night robbery in 2001 led Chiltern Railways to raise security concerns. As a result CCTV cameras were installed in 2002.
