The former service
The service was from Peterborough to Northampton via Wellingborough. The station opened in 1845 and closed in 1964 to passengers. The stationmaster's house still stands as a private residence.
The wooden waiting room on the platform was moved from Barnwell to Wansford station on the preserved Nene Valley Railway on 5 April 1977. The building is of typical LNWR wooden construction. It was originally built in 1884 for use by members of the Royal family when visiting Barnwell Manor, home of HRH The Duke of Gloucester.
