The Lakes is a railway station located on the North Warwickshire Line in the north of Stratford-on-Avon District in Warwickshire, England. The nearest settlement is the village of Earlswood.

Opened by the Great Western Railway as The Lakes Halt on 3 June 1935. The station was built to serve the nearby Earlswood Lakes, which were a popular destination for daytrippers. As it was only designed to cater for local traffic, it was built with relatively short platforms, being only 130 feet (39 metres) long.

Services[edit]

The service in each direction between Birmingham and Stratford runs hourly (including Sundays) with most northbound services running through to Stourbridge Junction. It is a request stop: passengers wishing to board a train here must signal to the driver; those wishing to alight must inform the train conductor.[1]
