Andover Town railway station served the town of Andover in the English county of Hampshire. Located on the Andover to Redbridge Line over which the Midland and South Western Junction Railway had running powers, its closure left services to the town to the former Andover Junction station.

History

Originally built by the Andover and Redbridge Railway, the station joined the London and South Western Railway and so was absorbed by the Southern Railway during the Grouping of 1923, although The M&SWJR was allocated to the Great Western Railway. The station then passed on to the Southern Region of British Railways on nationalisation in 1948.

The station was subsequently closed by the British Railways Board.

The site today

The former site is now occupied by the A3057 dual carriageway.
