Beighton railway station is a former railway station near the village of Beighton on the border between Derbyshire and South Yorkshire, England.
Beighton station existed on three sites at different times:
At the time this station was within Derbyshire but following changes in boundaries the site is now within the City of Sheffield, South Yorkshire, England.
All three stations were in the flood plain of the River Rother, which repeatedly led to problems.In 1950 these plus the generally poor state of the station building led British Railways to raise platform levels and undertake other remedial works.
Beighton station closed for the third and final time on 1 November 1954. It has since been demolished.
In 1897 the Lancashire, Derbyshire and East Coast Railway opened in a branch from Langwith Junction. The original hope had been to join the MS&LR line into Sheffield Victoria but it was rebuffed, so a goods yard and connection to the ex-North Midland line at Beighton was built instead, though this did not touch Beighton station. The LD&ECR obtained running rights along the Midland line to Treeton Junction and entered Sheffield via the Sheffield District Railway when it opened in 1900.
In March 2021, the 120-year-old Beighton Station Junction signal cabin, the last remaining relic of the station, was demolished, with control of the lines passing to the York Rail Operating Centre.

The Sheffield District Railway was a 3.5 miles (6 km) railway line in South Yorkshire, England. It was built to give the Lancashire, Derbyshire and East Coast Railway access to Sheffield, primarily for goods traffic, for which a large goods depot at Attercliffe, in Sheffield, was built. The construction was sponsored by the LD&ECR and the Great Eastern Railway together, with the support of the Midland Railway, which agreed running powers over sections of its own lines. The Sheffield District Railway opened in 1900. The LD&ECR operated the passenger service, although the Midland Railway later ran passenger trains too. The SDR did not have rolling stock and did not operate trains itself. The LD&ECR was absorbed by the Great Central Railway in 1907, and the GCR inherited the LD&ECR running powers.

The Lancashire, Derbyshire and East Coast Railway (LD&ECR) was built to connect coalfields in Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire with Warrington and a new port on the Lincolnshire coast. It was a huge undertaking, and the company was unable to raise the money to build its line. With the financial help of the Great Eastern Railway it managed to open between Chesterfield and Lincoln with a branch towards Sheffield from 1896. Despite efforts to promote tourist travel, the passenger business was never buoyant, but collieries were connected to the line, at first and in succeeding years. The Great Eastern Railway, and other main line companies, transported coal to the southern counties, and the company's engines took coal to Immingham in great quantities. The company had a fleet of tank engines.

The Beighton Branch was a railway branch line built by the Lancashire, Derbyshire and East Coast Railway (LD&ECR) in north eastern Derbyshire, England.
The Leen Valley lines of the Great Northern Railway were English railway branch lines built to get access to collieries in the Nottinghamshire coalfield. The Midland Railway had long been dominant in the area, but there was resentment against its monopolistic policies from coalowners, who encouraged the Great Northern Railway to build a line. The Leen Valley Line was opened in 1881; it ran as far as Annesley colliery. A passenger service was run the following year, and very considerable volumes of coal were hauled.
