Fenton Manor railway station was a station in the Fenton area of Stoke-on-Trent, opened in 1889 by the North Staffordshire Railway on its line to Leek.[1] It was located on Victoria Road and was one of two stations in the area, the other being Fenton on the Stoke-Derby Line.

The station closed in 1956.[2] The track is still in situ and the buildings still exist, the platform edges can still be traced.[3]

The station lies on the proposed line to reopen from Stoke to Leekbrook Junction (Moorland City Railway).
