The Oxford Railway was sanctioned in 1843 and was to join the city with the Great Western Railway at Didcot. There were two timber bridges over the river Thames - one of ten bays, each of 30ft span and the other of seven bays of 40ft span.

The line was opened on June 12th 1844 and in the same year was absorbed by the Great Western Railway.[1]
