Malpas railway station was a railway station near to the village of Malpas, Cheshire on the Whitchurch and Tattenhall Railway or Chester-Whitchurch Branch Line. The Station itself was actually located at Hampton Heath and was also known as Hampton Station.



On the eve of an official visit to Chester in May 1917 during the First World War, the Royal Train carrying George V and Queen Mary stopped for the night at Malpas station. Troops from the Household Division guarded the area throughout the stay.

The track bed has been almost obliterated but the station has been restored. These building are now used as offices.
