Dunham Hill railway station was a railway station in Dunham-on-the-Hill, Cheshire. It was opened in 1850 and closed in 1952.[1][2] Near to the station was a branch line leading to the former ROF Dunham on the Hill explosives storage depot.[3] The station buildings were demolished after closure but the platforms remained until the 1970s.
