Description

This was a two platform terminus approached from the east. The station building was at the buffer end of the station. There were two carriage sidings to the south and a three siding goods yard to the north. A signal box was at the east end on the south side of the station throat.

The station closed in 1968. Since closure the site has been entirely built over with housing, accessed by 'The Paddockholm' which runs through the northern part of the site.
