Forncett railway station was a railway station in Forncett, South Norfolk. It was opened in 1849 when the Great Eastern Main Line was constructed from London to Norwich. It was closed during the Beeching Axe with other smaller stations along the line.

The station was in the news in July 2012 when the body of a woman who had died after being hit by a train was found at the site.[1]
