Haughton Halt was a minor station located north of Shrewsbury on the GWR’s Paddington to Birkenhead main line. It was opened in the nineteen thirties as part of the GWR's halt construction programme, aimed at combatting growing competition from bus services and would primarily have served the adjacent (and now disused) Haughton Airfield. Today the route is part of the Shrewsbury to Chester line. Nothing now remains on the site.
Express trains did not call at Haughton Halt, only local services. No freight or parcels traffic was handled here.
