Ilmer Halt railway station was a former halt on the Great Western and Great Central Joint Railway serving the village of Ilmer in Buckinghamshire.

History

The Great Western & Great Central Joint Committee was created on 1 August 1899 with the dual objective of providing the Great Central Railway with a second route into London, bypassing the Metropolitan Railway; and of providing the Great Western Railway with a shorter route to the Midlands.[1][2]

The line ran from Northolt Junction to Ashendon Junction; the central section of its route was an existing GWR line. North of Princes Risborough a new line was constructed, which opened for goods on 20 November 1905, and for passengers on 2 April 1906.[3][4]

The station was closed in 1963.[5] The halt was demolished and little remains.
