Wedgwood railway station served the Wedgwood complex in Barlaston, Staffordshire, England. Although the station is not officially closed, no trains currently call at the station and it is instead served by a rail replacement bus.
The station was opened by British Rail in the 1950s to serve the Wedgwood complex in Staffordshire, England. Nearby is Wedgwood Hall, and the station also serves the village of Trentham, near Stoke-on-Trent.
In 2003 the line through the station was temporarily closed for major refurbishment work, but upon completion the station was not re-opened; the tracks through the station are still regularly used but trains do not stop there. Along with nearby Barlaston, a rail replacement bus serves the station instead, operated by BakerBus, which accepts valid rail tickets.
The station is currently threatened with complete closure - it was formerly served by the Stoke-on-Trent to Stafford stopping service, and unlike Stone, Wedgwood has not been included as a stop on the new Crewe - London Euston Service operated by London Midland. Access to the platforms is no longer possible as the station has been fenced off.
