Yangxin County (simplified Chinese: 阳新县; traditional Chinese: 陽新縣; pinyin: Yángxīn Xiàn) is a county within the prefecture-level city of Huangshi in southeastern Hubei province, People's Republic of China. It occupies the southern half of the Huangshi City, bordering on Jiangxi in the south, and with Tongshan County in the west. The Yangtze River flows along the county's eastern border.
The southern part of the county, located in the foothills of the Mufu Mountains, is hilly.
According to the Fifth Population Census of China (2000), the county's population was 949,100, making for the population density of 341 people per square kilometer.
The county is mostly rural, but more prosperous than its neighbor, Tongshan County.
The main transportation artery of the county is currently China National Highway 106, which, within this county, is also counted as China National Highway 316. However, it does not pass through the Yangxin county seat (Xingguo town); the town is served by Hubei provincial highway 316 (not to be confused with the national highway of the same number).
The Yangxin Railway Station is located on the Wuhan–Jiujiang Railway, which runs from Wuhan to Jiujiang, Jiangxi. A number of passenger trains running from the Wuchang (or sometimes Hankou) stations in Wuhan stop at the Yangxin Railway Station. The distance from the Yangxin station to Wuchang by rail is 153 kilometres (95 mi), the typical travel time by train being around 2 hours, usually with stops at the Huangshi station, Ezhou, and Huazhong.
