Wickham Bishops railway station served the village of Wickham Bishops, Essex. It was opened in 1848 by the Maldon, Witham & Braintree Railway (MWBR) on a branch line from Witham to Maldon East and Heybridge. The line and station closed to passenger services in 1964 though goods traffic continued for a further two years.
The MWBR, which consisted of two branch lines from the Eastern Counties Railway station at Witham, opened for goods traffic on 15 August 1848. Passenger services began on 2 October that year, and a station originally named Wickham was opened that day.
The station was renamed Wickham Bishops on 1 October 1913. It, and the rest of the line, closed on 7 September 1964.
