Altrincham (1st) railway station served the district of Altrincham Cheshire, now Altrincham, Greater Manchester between 1849 and 1881.

The station was built by the Manchester, South Junction and Altrincham Railway (MSJ&AR) and opened on 20 July 1849.[1]

This first Altrincham station was located just south of Stockport Road level crossing and its junction with Stamford Street. The station consisted of two platforms and a station building. It served the locality until 3 April 1881[1] when both it and Bowdon railway station were closed, being replaced by the new large facility named Altrincham and Bowdon (now Altrincham railway station), situated between the two former stations.

There are no remains of this station today.
