Patricroft railway station is in the Patricroft district of Eccles, Greater Manchester, England. The station is on Green Lane, Patricroft just north of the junction with Cromwell Road and just east of the Bridgewater Canal. It is unstaffed and passengers must buy their tickets on the train or at their destination station.

The station is situated on the world's first inter-city passenger railway, between Liverpool and Manchester, and is also located close to the worlds first commercial canal. The station used to have an adjacent engine shed, Patricroft MPD, which was located to the rear of the Manchester-bound platform on the northern side of the station. The engine shed opened in 1884 and closed in 1968. The majority of the station buildings were demolished in the 1980s, with only a waiting shelter remaining on each platform.
