Bourton-on-the-Water was a Gloucestershire station on the Great Western Railway's Banbury and Cheltenham Direct Railway which opened in 1881 and closed in 1964. The station building, in 2009 on the edge of an industrial estate, was demolished in 2011
The station was situated just to the north the village and served surrounding villages like Lower Slaughter. The station passed on to the Western Region of British Railways on nationalisation in 1948. The last passenger service to the station was on 13 October 1962. Goods services between the station and Cheltenham ceased in 1962 with the service between Bourton and Kingham closing a year later.
Following closure, the station was used as a highways depot by Gloucestershire County Council. The present station building, built in the 1930s, is earmarked for demolition in late 2009. The Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway had considered reusing the building at its Broadway station, but later changed its mind.
