Cannon Street Road was a short-lived railway station in Shadwell, east London, that was on the London and Blackwall Railway (LBR) between Minories and Shadwell stations. It opened in August 1842 but was closed c. December 1848.[1]

The reasons for its closure are unclear, but it may have been due to low passenger usage combined with its close proximity to other stations.

In 1877 a new LBR station called Leman Street was opened slightly to the west of the Cannon Street Road site.
