Wednesfield Heath for Wolverhampton railway station was a station built on the Grand Junction Railway and opened on 4 July 1837. It served the city of Wolverhampton, and was located around a mile to the east of the city centre within the suburb of Heath Town, on Station Road (also known as Powell Street). It was designated as a First Class station.
The station was closed to passengers by the London and North Western Railway on 1 January 1873 as it had been replaced as the LNWR's main station for Wolverhampton by Wolverhampton High Level on the same line, which was closer to the city centre.
The station remained open for goods traffic until 1965 when the station was demolished - leaving only part of the northbound platform extant. Part of the area is now a nature reserve, called Station Fields.
The lines through the station are in use today as a bypass for Wolverhampton.
