Aldeburgh railway station was a station in Aldeburgh, Suffolk. It was opened in 1860 by the East Suffolk Railway, and later came under the control of the Great Eastern Railway. The terminus of an 8.5 mile branch line to Saxmundham, the station closed in 1966 as part of the Beeching Axe as much of the British rural rail network was cut back.
Opened by the East Suffolk Railway, then the it became part of the Great Eastern Railway. The Grouping of 1923 saw the line pass on to the London and North Eastern Railway. Then it joined the Eastern Region of British Railways on nationalisation in 1948.
It was then closed by the British Railways Board. There is a video of the line taken in 1957 called "1957 Saxmundham to Aldeburgh Railway line", which shows Thorpe Halt and Aldeburgh stations and views of the track on YouTube.
