Tattenhall railway station was a railway station in the village of Tattenhall, Cheshire on the Whitchurch and Tattenhall Railway or Chester-Whitchurch Branch Line, about a mile to the south of Tattenhall junction where the branch line diverged from the North Wales Coast Line running from Chester in the north-west towards Crewe to the south-east.

History[edit]

The station was closed in 1957, and the name Tattenhall was transferred to the nearby Tattenhall Road station on the Chester–Crewe line. That station subsequently also closed, in 1966.[1]
