Dunham W&SR railway station served Dunham Town between 1854 and closure in 1855.

Construction and opening[edit]

The Warrington and Altrincham Junction Railway (W&AJR) built its railway line from Warrington Arpley via Latchford and Lymm to Skelton Junction near Altrincham during 1852/53 and passenger train services commenced on 1 November 1853. The station served Dunham Massey in Cheshire, now Greater Manchester which was opened in June 1854. The station was located off School Lane, Dunham Town. The station only operated briefly due to its proximity, westwards, to Dunham Massey railway station and closed in May 1855.
