Southam Road and Harbury railway station was a railway station a mile east of Harbury, Warwickshire.

History

The station was on the Birmingham and Oxford Junction Railway, which was taken over by the Great Western Railway prior to opening from Banbury to Birmingham on 1 October 1852; Southam Road and Harbury was one of nine intermediate stations originally provided.[1] The station was brick-built and had a goods siding.

British Railways closed the station to goods traffic on 11 November 1963,[2] and to passengers on 2 November 1964.[3][4] It was subsequently demolished and few traces remain. The route is now part of the Chiltern Main Line.
