Opened on the Newcastle and Carlisle Railway.


Description

This is a two platform station. There is a car park on the south side. To the west is a level crossing and a signal box, on the north side of the line and east of the crossing.

The main station building was on the westbound platform, now the site of the car park. The goods yard, the site of the original temporary station, was to the south of the station, approached from the east. This served the local gas works. The site is now housing.

The signal box is stone built, with a large glazed window overlooking the level crossing.

A brick built two storey railway building which stood to the east of the station building remains standing.

To the east, where the goods lines joined the railway, the line was quadrupled for a short length. This has reverted to double track. A siding on the south side survives, out of use, as a refuge siding.

To the west, on the south side, was a siding for an iron foundry.
