Description

This is a two platform station. The eastbound platform is stone and the westbound is timber, it being relocated east from its original location - platforms were originally staggered. The site of the westbound was a siding.

The main station building was on the north side of the line, at the end of the lane running south from the village of Bardon Mill which is just to the north. The goods yard, looped sidings, was at the west end of the line and north of it, opposite the original westbound platform.

The signal box, on the south side of the line, west end of the goods yard, remains in operation although often switched out.

The station building now stands west of the station, due to the platform relocation. It is now a house. The building is stone built with two storeys and a timber extension to the east in a single storey.
