Northampton Station (Northampton)

Northampton Station serves the market town of Northampton.

Formerly known as Northampton Castle Station, it was built in 1883, and rebuilt by R. L. Moorcroft in 1964.

It stands on the site of Northampton Castle, only a few minutes walk from the town centre.

Trains reach Northampton from Euston Station in London via Milton Keynes. Northampton is on a loop, and trains continue to Rugby, Coventry and Birmingham.

There were formerly two other stations in Northampton. Bridge Street, built by J. W. Livock in 1845, is now demolished, and so is St. Johns, which was built by Alexander Milne in 1872.

Another line formerly ran to Brixworth, Market Harborough, Melton Mowbray and Newark.

Another ran to Towcester and Banbury, and to Wellingborough, Oundle and Stamford.

Yet another went to Olney and Bedford.
