Haxey and Epworth railway station was located near Haxey, Lincolnshire, England.[2][3] It closed to passengers in 1959 and completely in 1964.

From 2 January 1905, it provided an interchange with the Axholme Joint Railway, whose Haxey Junction station was immediately adjacent to it.[4] Although the lines were connected, movement between the stations required two reversals.[5] The interchange ceased on 1 February 1956 when the Haxey Junction to Epworth section of the Axholme Joint Railway was closed.[6]
