Alveley Halt railway station was a station in the village of Alveley, in the English county of Shropshire. The station, not used by the reopened heritage Severn Valley Railway, has been replaced by the adjacent Country Park Halt on that line.
Opened on the original Severn Valley Line run from the outset by the Great Western Railway, the station stayed with that company during the Grouping of 1923, passing on to the Western Region of British Railways during the nationalisation of 1948. It was then closed by the British Transport Commission.
