Kelvedon is a railway station serving the villages of Kelvedon and Feering in Essex. The station is located on the Great Eastern Main Line. It is also the closest station to the large settlements of Coggeshall and Tiptree. To the north-east, on the other side of Station Road, was Kelvedon Low Level railway station, which until 1951 was the terminus of the now-closed Kelvedon and Tollesbury Light Railway.
In common with most rural stations Kelvedon handled local goods and the 1923 plan shows sidings with cattle pens on the up side at the London end, and sidings with a goods shed on the down side at the London end of the station. There was also a large warehouse which was used by King Seeds for many years on the down side. The goods yard closed on 7 December 1964.
The station complex was controlled by a signal box at the London end of the up platform which closed on 3 December 1961 when Witham power box became responsible for the section through to Marks Tey.
