Date opened: 20.5.1851
Location: On the east side of Bletchingdon Road
Company on opening: Buckinghamshire Railway
Notes: The station was provided with a goods shed and cattle dock both sited on the down side of the line. A siding on the up side was built in the mid 1930's to serve an RAF reserve fuel depot. After the war the site was taken over by Esso as a fuel dispersal depot, it was expanded in the 1980's and in the late 1960's 60 wagons a day would enter the depot, thirty in the morning and 30 in the afternoon. The fuel depot is still in use although the rail connection has now been severed. Islip Station closed on 30 Dec 1967 and was reopened on 15 May 1989. The original platforms and buildings were all demolished and the station was provided with a new platform.
