Lenwade railway station was a railway station in North Norfolk, England. It was built by the Lynn and Fakenham Railway Company in 1882 and taken over by the Midland and Great Northern Joint Railway (M&GNJR) in 1893, to serve the small hamlet of Lenwade. [1] Despite the settlement's size, the railway provided a direct service to Norwich and King's Lynn. It closed to passengers in 1959, but remained open to goods trains until 1983.[2]

At grouping in 1923 the M&GNJR remained in existence, but was now jointly owned by the London, Midland and Scottish Railway and the London and North Eastern Railway. The latter took over sole operation in 1936.

The station is now on the route of Marriott's Way. The station is now a private residence and has been fully restored.
