Cheddington railway station serves the village of Cheddington, in Buckinghamshire, England, and the surrounding villages, including Ivinghoe and Mentmore. The station is 36 miles/58 km north west of London Euston on the West Coast Main Line. It is operated by London Midland, which also provides all services.

View northbound from Platform 1 in 2012

The station has four platforms, each with 12 carriage capacity, but only platforms 3 and 4 are used regularly and platforms 1 and 2 are used only during engineering works and distruption. Platforms 2 and 3 form a centre island. The main station buildings are located on Platform 1 adjacent to the car park. Access to the other platforms is gained by a footbridge.

The ticket office closed on 28 March 2013 and the station is now unstaffed.[1]

Cheddington was formerly a junction for the LNWR's branch line to Aylesbury High Street. This branch terminated in the east of Aylesbury and made no connection to the GCR/Metropolitan Railway station in that town. The branch closed to passengers in 1953 but with freight services continuing until 1964. The trackless edge of the Aylesbury branch platform is still in evidence at Cheddington and part of the old track bed of the branch is now used as the station's approach road.

Just over 1.2 miles (2 km) north of this station, on the stretch of line between Cheddington and Leighton Buzzard, is Bridego Bridge, the scene of the Great Train Robbery of 1963.

Services[edit]

The basic pattern is one train each hour, seven days a week in each direction: southbound to London Euston and northbound to Milton Keynes Central. Additional trains supplement this pattern during the weekday morning peak and evening peak periods. There is currently one train to and from Crewe via the Trent Valley Line on weekday mornings. [2]
