Easton Lodge railway station was a station located to the west of Great Dunmow, Essex, near Easton Lodge. It closed in 1952, with the line being used for freight until it was closed in 1972.

It was described in the Railway Magazine:

The Earl of Warwick has also the pleasure of possessing a railway station of his own. It is attached to his Essex residence of Easton Lodge, and bears the same name as the house. Of course, it is on the line owned by the Great Eastern Railway, and a short distance from Dunmow. It is perhaps as much used as any really "private" station, for the Warwick family spend much time every year at Easton, and keep constant company there.[2]
