Daventry railway station opened in 1888 with much celebration and ceremony. It used to be located to the east of the town centre (roughly where the current McDonalds sits), and the railway ran down along Southway. The station itself was built largely from wood and provided important transport links for workers, school children and various goods. The engine servicing the passengers was called ‘The Gusher’, which also became the nickname for the local weekly newspaper: the Daventry Express.
