Middlewood railway station serves the Middlewood and Higher Poynton districts of Poynton, Cheshire, England.

It is on the Stockport to Buxton line, opened in 1879 by the London and North Western Railway on the Stockport, Disley and Whaley Bridge Railway which they had acquired in 1866. The station is managed and served by Northern and is the last station in the Transport for Greater Manchester ticketing area.

There is no vehicular access to the station. Access is only by woodland paths, the nearest road being some 870 yards (800 m) away. It is one of the three stations that provide access to the Middlewood Way.

In July 2009, Poynton Town Council announced that they would be part funding with the aid of a grant from the High Peak and Hope Valley Community Rail Partnership, the installation of a Cycle Rack and Improved Signage to and at the station. These improvements have now been implemented, along with the installation of additional lighting, a new PA system and a Hearing Induction Loop.

In June 2016, a landslip at the station following heavy rain meant that all services were suspended between Hazel Grove and Buxton until 25 June. Parts of the track and platform were both affected.

Service

There is a generally an hourly service each day to Manchester Piccadilly northbound and to Buxton southbound, with additional services at peak periods. One train each weekday continues through to/from Blackpool North, Clitheroe, Bolton, Wigan North Western, Preston, Wigan Wallgate and Barrow-in-Furness.
