Dean railway station, also shown as Dean (Wilts), serves the village of West Dean in Wiltshire, England. The station is on the Wessex Main Line, 88 miles 10 chains (141.8 km) measured from London Waterloo. Whilst the station building is in Wiltshire, the platforms straddle the county boundary with Hampshire.[1][2]

South Western Railway operate a regular service between Salisbury and Romsey via Southampton Central. This runs hourly during the week, with a two-hourly service on Sundays, and uses 2-car Class 158 units.[3] As a result of this the number of Great Western Railway services between Portsmouth Harbour and Cardiff that stop at Dean was reduced. As of October 2011, there are no Great Western Railway trains stopping at Dean, and from April 2020 the management of the station was transferred from GWR to SWR.[4]
