Gretton railway station was a railway station near Gretton, Northamptonshire. It was on the now freight-only Oakham to Kettering Line of the Midland Railway. The steps up to the former platforms can still be seen, but the station building itself is in private ownership.

As of 2014 the station buildings still remain, though in private ownership. The station itself is an interesting two storey building situated on a viaduct on the edge of the village - easily visible on the road from Rockingham (which itself has a disused station).
