Description:
Coundon Road railway station was a railway station in England, built by the London and North Western Railway in 1850 when it was known as Counden Road railway station

It was the first station north of Coventry on the Coventry to Nuneaton Line, and closed in 1965.

In January 1857, Coundon Road station became the temporary terminus on the route when the nearby Spon End Viaduct collapsed. The station was rebuilt in 1896 after the original station buildings were destroyed by fire.

The Up (Coventry) platform and station master's house can still clearly be seen. The Down (Nuneaton) platform is also in situ, although with its platform edging now removed.

Signal box

Also on the site at Coundon Road is the 1876 LNWR signal box, which until recently controlled the level crossing gates and signals. The signal box closed on 23 May 2009 as part of the Coventry - Nuneaton line resignalling project.
