Napton and Stockton railway station was a railway station on the London and North Western Railway branch line between Weedon and Leamington Spa.

The station was built of wood and opened on 1 August 1895. It had two platforms, one having the main station facilities and the other being on a passing loop.

The station was about 0.75 miles (1.21 km) north of Stockton and 1 mile (1.6 km) south of Broadwell. Napton was at least 2.5 miles (4.0 km) away.

British Railways withdrew passenger traffic on 15 September 1958[1] and freight services on 2 December 1963.[2]

No trace of the station now remains, as the cutting where it was located has been filled in. Although some former railway workers cottages are nearby.[3]
