Hazelwell railway station was a railway station on the Camp Hill Line in Birmingham, England. It was built in 1903, between the existing Kings Heath and Lifford stations.[1]

The station closed in 1941, when passenger services were withdrawn from the line due to "wartime economy measures", and was not reopened.[1] The line remained open for freight and is also used for some longer distance passenger services.
