Cheltenham High Street Halt was a railway station on the Great Western Railway's Honeybourne Line between Cheltenham and Birmingham via Stratford-upon-Avon. It opened on 1 October 1908 and closed on 30 April 1917 due to the First World War, never to be reopened.
Situated on top of an embankment, the halt was a late addition to a site upon which something much larger and grander had originally been planned but was never built, to wit, Townsend Street Station, whose ornate facade would have occupied almost all of the East side of Townsend Street, a thoroughfare to the west of the line.
The Halt had a pagoda-style shelter on each platform, and was unstaffed. Nothing exits today, save the steel bridge which still spans the road, now (2015) carrying a footpath.
