Loudwater railway station was a railway station which served Loudwater, Buckinghamshire, on the Wycombe Railway.

History

Loudwater station was located at the bottom of Treadaway Hill just past the M40 bridge and served both Loudwater and Flackwell Heath. It opened in 1854 and the station became a halt in 1968 because of decreased service on the line. The station was closed and demolished in 1970. The site is now an industrial park, although at the rear of the park the old railway tunnel under the M40 is still in place. A railway conservation path towards High Wycombe follows the route of the former railway.
