This was a two platform station on the north side of a level crossing. The main station building was on the northbound platform was a waiting room on the southbound.

To the south of the level crossing was the goods yard, on the east side and approached from the south. One of the Littlemill Quarries was reached from this by reversal. A further of the Littlemill Quarries was on the west side, approached from the north. This included the Littlemill Lime Works, the former lime kiln of which still survives.

Little of the station remains today, except for the stone built base of the signal box which was on the south side of the level crossing and on the west side.

Little Mill is an estate to the north of the former station.
