Walsall Wood railway station was a station on the Midland Railway in England. It was opened in 1884. It closed in March 1930 for passenger use, and the track was closed in 1962.

The branch line that the station was situated on was planned to access the colliery traffic in the Cannock area and to link to the Cannock Chase and Wolverhampton Railway, and passenger traffic was a secondary consideration.
