Blakedown railway station serves the English village of Blakedown, Worcestershire. It was opened (as Churchill station) in 1852, and was later known as Churchill & Blakedown before adopting its current name (the signal box still uses the old name, as shown below).

The station is unstaffed, with only a basic shelter on each platform. There is a level crossing immediately to the west of the platforms, and in the absence of a footbridge or subway this is also the only method for passengers to cross the tracks.

The platforms were lengthened in the 1990s to allow longer trains to call (see image - the hollow space and the white fence mark the extension). This is because Blakedown is within the Birmingham commuter band and usage increased.

Since August 2012 the signalling system has been altered, with the former signal box having been abolished and control of the nearby crossing and signals transferred to the West Midlands SCC at Saltley.
