Description

This is a single platform station. There is a building on the platform.

It was formerly a two platform station and the northbound line was lifted, parts of its platform remain disused. The platforms were slightly staggered. The main building had been on the remaining platform.

There was a goods yard on either side, just south of the station, some sidings accessed by turnplates. Ultimately the sidings were on the east side of the line, accessed from the south.

With road improvements, planners have placed the station in the middle of a large roundabout. There is a car park.
