Warmley was a small railway station just south of Mangotsfield on the Midland Railway Mangotsfield and Bath Branch Line. The station was sited just north of a level crossing on the A420 road through the town. It had wooden buildings: the shelter on the down platform (towards Bath) survives and is used on occasion as a refreshment stop on the Bristol & Bath Railway Path, which follows the route of the railway.[1]

It was served by stopping trains from Bath to Mangotsfield, Bristol St Philips and Bristol Temple Meads, via Bitton and Oldland Common.
