Opened on the Garstang and Knot End Railway.


This was an island platform station. It was located in Garstang, unlike the older Garstang and Catterall station which was further east. Access to the island platform was by lattice footbridge.

There was a locomotive shed on the north side, approached from the east and a goods yard on the south side approached from the west.

The line itself was single track.

Before the line was extended west to Knott End it was not an island platform but did have a passing loop.

The site has been obliterated with housing.
