Stow St. Mary Halt railway station was a halt that served the village of Stow Maries, Essex.

It was opened on 24 September 1928 by the London and North Eastern Railway on the single-track branch line (Engineer's Line Reference WFM) that the Great Eastern Railway had opened on 1 October 1889 linking Woodham Ferrers to Maldon West. The station served the village of Stow Maries, but the station was named differently supposedly on the insistence of the vicar.[2]

It was closed in September 1939 but the line remained in use for goods traffic until 1959[3] or 1953.[4] It is now Stow Maries Halt nature reserve, which is managed by the Essex Wildlife Trust.
