Bamford railway station serves the village of Bamford in the Derbyshire Peak District, in England.

It was opened in 1894 on the Midland Railway's Dore and Chinley line (now the Hope Valley Line). It became an unstaffed halt in 1969.Last Station Master (Mr. Bamford!) purchased Station House in 1968.(House built 1902.)

Bamford is near to a series of dams in the Upper Derwent Valley. During the construction of the Howden Reservoir in 1912 and the Derwent in 1916, the railway carried stone from Grindleford to a point between Bamford and Hope. The railway interchange was re-instated in 1945 for the Ladybower Reservoir.
