Higham Ferrers is a former railway station on a Midland Railway branch line from Wellingborough. It served the market town of Higham Ferrers, Northamptonshire, England.

The line was closed in 1971, and the station has since been demolished and the track lifted. It is the eventual aim of the Heritage Rushden, Higham & Wellingborough Railway to reopen the line to Higham Ferrers from its base at Rushden station as well as to Wellingborough.
