History

The station was opened in 1912 by the LNWR and formed the terminus of a branch line of the Watford-Rickmansworth line. British Rail continued to run services until 1996.

In 1996 the station was closed, supposedly temporarily, and a section of the embankment just east of the Grand Union Canal Bridge was removed to make way for a new Ascot Road to improve traffic flow to the nearby business park. It was considered uneconomical to bridge the road, and the station remains breached from the rest of the line.

The station and the line were permantly closed on 18 June 2001.

Croxley Rail Link proposal

Transport for London is supporting the Croxley Rail Link, a proposal to reopen the Croxley Green branch to a point short of the station and then link it to the nearby Metropolitan Line's Watford branch. If the proposal goes ahead, London Underground services would use the branch line between Croxley and Watford Junction stations. The old Croxley Green station would not reopen, but it would be replaced by the new Ascot Road station nearby.[1]
