High Lane railway station was a railway station serving the village of High Lane in Greater Manchester, England. It was opened in 1869 by the Macclesfield, Bollington and Marple Railway (MB&M) - a joint line constructed and operated by the Manchester, Sheffield and Lincolnshire Railway (MS&L) and North Staffordshire Railways (NSR).

Like the other stations on the MB&M, the station buildings and signalling were provided by the NSR and train services by the MS&L.[2]

The station closed in January 1970, along with the entirety of the MB&M. The track was lifted and the trackbed now forms part of the Middlewood Way, a recreational path between Macclesfield and Marple.[3]
