This was a two platform station with a passing loop. The main station building was on the westbound platform and a waiting room on the eastbound. A footbridge connecting the platforms just east of both buildings. The station's signal box (1892) was at the east end of the eastbound platform.

There was a goods yard to the north of the platforms, approached from the east.

The station closed to passengers in 1951. The box closed in 1962 and the railway closed completely in 1967.

The two storey station building remains in use as a house. Platforms and loading banks remain in the garden.
