Ballingham railway station is a disused stone built railway station that served the villages of Ballingham and Carey in Herefordshire. It was situated between Ballingham Railway Bridge and Ballingham Tunnel, two of the most substantial structures on the Great Western Railway line which linked Ross-on-Wye and Hereford. Originally proposed by the owner of Ballingham Court the station had a limited service and was never well used. It closed, along with the line, on 2 November 1964.
The station building has been extended and is now a private house. The platform is still in existence.
