Ashwell and Morden railway station is a wayside railway station in Cambridgeshire, England.
Close to the border with
Hertfordshire, it is in the hamlet of Odsey, slightly north of the Icknield Way, a Roman Road that is now the A505. The station is served by trains between Cambridge and London King's Cross. The villages it serves, as well as Odsey, are Ashwell, Guilden Morden and Steeple Morden, although it is located a couple of miles from each of them and linked to them only by minor roads.
History [ edit ]
Opened as Ashwell station by the
Royston and Hitchin Railway (R&HR) on 21 October 1850, the R&HR was later absorbed by the [1 ] Great Northern Railway (GNR). The name was changed to Ashwell and Morden on 1 April 1920 three years before the GNR amalgamated with several other railways to form the [1 ] London and North Eastern Railway during the Grouping of 1923. The station then passed on to the Eastern Region of British Railways on nationalisation in 1948.
Sectorisation was introduced in the 1980s, the station was served by Network SouthEast until the Privatisation of British Railways.
