Yelvertoft and Stanford Park railway station was a railway station serving Yelvertoft in the English county of Northamptonshire. It was opened as Stanford Hall on the Rugby and Stamford Railway in 1850.

Parliamentary approval was gained in 1846 by the directors of the London and Birmingham Railway for a branch from Rugby to the Syston and Peterborough Railway near Stamford. [2] In the same year the company became part of the London and North Western Railway. The section from Rugby to Market Harborough, which included Yelvertoft, opened in 1850. Originally single track, it was doubled at the end of 1878.[3]

At grouping in 1923 it became part of the London Midland and Scottish Railway.
