Brampton Halt railway station was a railway station located in the Brampton area of Newcastle-under-Lyme, Staffordshire, England. It was opened by the North Staffordshire Railway (NSR) in 1905 but was short-lived, closing in April 1923, just prior to the amalgamation of the NSR into the London, Midland & Scottish Railway.[1]

Present day[edit]

It is now realigned for road usage and the former site is now lost under Brampton Sidings Industrial Estate.
