The 1895 Minor Counties Championship was the first running of the Minor Counties Cricket Championship, and ran from 3 June to 29 August 1895. The inaugural title was shared between three counties—Durham, Norfolk and Worcestershire—as they finished level on three points apiece.[1]

The leading run-scorer was Thomas Pointon, playing for Cheshire,[2] whose score of 110 against Durham was one of only six centuries scored over the course of the season.[3] The leading wicket-taker, Oxfordshire's Peter Rogers,[4] took three ten wicket match hauls.[5]
