Christian Malford Halt served the village of Christian Malford, Wiltshire from 1926 to 1965. It was situated on the Great Western Main Line which runs from London to Bristol.

The station is located half a mile south of Christian Malford where the railway passes over Station Road. The halt consisted of two timber platforms, each with a wooden shelter. There is no trace of the halt today, although the access path on the up side is still there.
