Whittlesford Parkway railway station serves the nearby village of Whittlesford in Cambridgeshire, England. It is also near to the villages of Sawston and Duxford and the Imperial War Museum Duxford. The 13th century Duxford Chapel is on the station road just east of the station.

The station opened in 1845 and was rebuilt between 1877 and 1890.[1]

In May 2007, the station was renamed from Whittlesford to Whittlesford Parkway.

Services[edit]

Two trains per hour call at the station each way throughout the week, with extra trains at weekday peak times. Mondays to Saturdays, these both run southbound to London Liverpool Street via Tottenham Hale - one is a semi-fast service calling at principal stations only whilst the other serves most intermediate stations to Cheshunt, then fast from there. On Sundays the latter runs to Stratford instead. Northbound there is one non-stop train each hour to Cambridge and a second that calls at Shelford. A limited number of weekday peak trains continue onwards to Ely and Kings Lynn.[2]
