Description

This was a two platform station to the north of the level crossing at Holywood. On the west side of the line was a large goods yard, approached from the north.

The station was relocated south of the level crossing as Holywood [2nd] which allowed development of a loop on the east side of the line parlty occupying the land where the southbound platform had been located.

The station closed to goods in 1964.

Several buildings, including the signal box, goods shed and ancillary buildings survive. Nothing remains of the original platforms.
