Ringstead and Addington railway station was a railway station serving Great and Little Addington and Ringstead in Northamptonshire on the former Northampton and Peterborough Railway which connected Peterborough and Northampton.
It was notable that the approach from Addington was partly across stepping stones made from former railway sleeper blocks. This still remains although covered in overgrowth.
The former service
The service was from Peterborough to Northampton via Wellingborough. The station opened in 1845 and closed in 1964 to passengers.
