This is a two platform station.

This station formerly had four lines, two serving platforms with the other two being centre roads. There was an overall roof structure, the platforms being covered and lines uncovered. The centre two lines were lifted in the 1950s. In the 1980s the roof was entirely removed and the eastbound platform and line were moved south, closing the gap between the eastbound and westbound lines. A booking office and waiting room was built on the eastbound platform and a street level building was left to the south on Kemp Street, now given over to other uses.

There was a goods yard to the north, approached from the west. The site is now a car park and bus station.

The line is promoted and supported by the Rail 74 Community Rail Partnership .
