The station was on the Birmingham and Oxford Junction Railway, which was taken over by the Great Western Railway prior to opening from Banbury to Birmingham on 1 October 1852; Southam Road and Harbury was one of nine intermediate stations originally provided. The station was brick-built and had a goods siding.
British Railways closed the station to goods traffic on 11 November 1963, and to passengers on 2 November 1964. It was subsequently demolished and few traces remain. The route is now part of the Chiltern Main Line.
