Aynho for Deddington railway station was a railway station serving the village of Aynho in Northamptonshire, England. It was on what is now known as the Cherwell Valley Line.

History

When the first section of the Oxford and Rugby Railway was opened as far as Banbury on 2 September 1850,[1][2] there were only three intermediate stations, the northernmost of which was Aynho.[1][3] The Oxford & Rugby Railway was absorbed by the Great Western Railway prior to opening.[2]

To the north of the station is Aynho Junction, the northern end of the Bicester "cut-off" line, which was brought into use in 1910.[4][5] This route passes close to Aynho station, and a nearby station named Aynho Park was provided on the Bicester "cut-off" route.[4][6]

The station passed on to the Western Region of British Railways on nationalisation in 1948. It was then closed by the British Railways Board, to goods on 4 May 1964 and to passengers on 2 November 1964, along with three other stations between Leamington Spa and Didcot; by this time it had been renamed Aynho for Deddington.[7][8]
