This was a two platform station. The main building was on the southbound platform. Platforms were slightly staggered, the northbound platform being slightly to the north.

The original signal box, of 1877, was at the south end of the northbound platform, replaced with one to the north of the building on the southbound platform.

The station closed in 1965. The loop closed in 1971 when the signal box closed too.
