Little Bytham railway station was a station in Little Bytham, Lincolnshire on the Great Northern Railway main line. It closed in 1959.[1] The Midland and Great Northern Joint Railway crossed just north of the station. The GNR were given powers to build a junction but never did so.[2] The nearest station on the M&GNR was at Castle Bytham. [3]

From 1857 to 1884, Little Bytham was the junction for the Edenham & Little Bytham Railway branch line to Edenham.[4] The public house now called The Willoughby Arms, but then The Steam Engine was built as the terminus, although the track crossed into the GNR goods yard for interchange purposes.[5][6]
