There were two stations on the Towcester/Banbury section, Wappenham was one, over a mile from its village namesake. Wappenham was a simple station with a platform and modest goods facilities. A simple structure, the station building supported two large chimneys, its had no canopy as such just a porch-like out-crop onto the platform. From Wappenham, trains rounded a long curve and faced a long ascent onto Helmdon
Wappenham opened to goods traffic in August 1871 and closed for passengers with the rest of the line in the early 50's.
