Easton Court railway station was a station in Little Hereford, Herefordshire, England. The station opened on 1 August 1861 as the only intermediate stop on the Tenbury Railway.[1] It was removed from the passenger timetable in October 1862 due to a lack of traffic.[2] Following the opening of the Tenbury and Bewdley Railway on 13 August 1864, which completed the line from Woofferton to Bewdley, Easton Court re-opened in April 1865.

The station appeared in some timetables as "Easton Court for Little Hereford". It closed on 31 July 1961,[3] the same date as the closure of the former Tenbury Railway.
