Penwortham Cop Lane was a railway station on the West Lancashire Railway in England. It served the town of Penwortham just outside Preston. It was between Higher Penwortham and Lower Penwortham. It was opened by the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway in 1911 and was closed by British Rail in 1964.

The cutting which once carried the railway under Cop Lane has been widened and now carries the A582 Penwortham bypass.
