Broughton Gifford Halt was a small railway station serving Broughton Gifford in Wiltshire, England, opened in 1905 for the newly introduced steam railcar service between Chippenham and Trowbridge.[1]

The halt was southeast of the village at the Mill Lane bridge, near the road between Melksham and Bradford-on-Avon; it was closed in 1955 but the line remains open.[2]
