Lakenheath railway station serves the village of Lakenheath in Suffolk, England.
The station lies some three miles north of the village of Lakenheath, and is not within convenient walking distance of any sizable population. However, there is a population of over 10,000 people (Lakenheath village, Feltwell and Hockwold cum Wilton) within a 5-mile radius of the station.
Services at Lakenheath consist of one train to Cambridge and one train to Norwich on Saturdays. There are three services to Cambridge and four services to Norwich on Sundays. All services are provided by Abellio Greater Anglia and use Class 170 DMUs. East Midlands Trains services pass through the station but do not stop.
Lakenheath is one of the least used stations in the United Kingdom, according to the Strategic Rail Authority figures of 2003.
Lakenheath Station has seen somewhat of a boom in passenger numbers for the period 2007-2008. A fivefold increase in passengers using the station can be attributed to the number of services calling at the station on a Sunday to service the local RSPB nature reserve at Lakenheath Fen.
RSPB Lakenheath Fen is immediately adjacent to the station.
