It was opened on 1 September 1862 as Cheltenham Tewkesbury Road Bridge, and a month later, on 1 October, was renamed Cheltenham High Street.
The Midland and South Western Junction Railway (MSWJ) had reached Cirencester in 1883. On 1 August 1891 the MSWJ opened an extension from Cirencester to Andoversford, which connected with the existing Banbury and Cheltenham Direct Railway; the MSWJ obtained permission to use that line to reach Cheltenham. The MSWJ passenger trains ran to Cheltenham (Lansdown), whereas the goods trains continued a little further north, to Cheltenham High Street. The MSWJ built a locomotive depot adjacent to High Street station.
