Rodwell was a small railway station on the Portland Branch Railway in the west of the English county of Dorset. Opened on 1 June 1870, it initially had one platform. However, as part of a scheme that saw several halts opened on the GWR with Railmotor services to counter road competition, a passing place was put in and Rodwell gained another platform and a signal box. The station closed with the branch in 1952. The former trackbed of the line is now part of the Rodwell Trail walk. The former platforms are still in place, just south of the tunnel, under a road and the former Portwey Hospital site.
