About Kettering Railway Station
Kettering Railway Station is a four-platform train station serving the town of Kettering, Northamptonshire. It was opened in 1857 by Midland Railway. At the time, the area’s leather industry was in the depths of a recession, and more than half the town’s population required ‘poor relief’. The station allowed wider distribution, and was instrumental in restoring Kettering’s economy.
