Haverhill (CVHR) railway station was a station in Haverhill, Suffolk. It was a terminus on the Colne Valley and Halstead Railway. It was sometimes known as Haverhill South to distinguish it from Haverhill railway station on the Stour Valley Railway which also served the town. In 1924 passenger services were diverted to Haverhill North but the station continued to be served by freight trains until 1965. Since closure the station has been demolished and the site redeveloped.
