Description

This was a single platform station with a passing loop. The goods yard was on the west side, approached from the north, and passenger platform on the east side with a two storey station building.

From the goods yard the Pinmore and Tormichell Quarry Railway ran north east along roads, initially crossing the road bridge north of the station. The quarry was a lime works.

The signal box closed in 1964 along with the loop and goods yard. The station closed to passengers the following year.

Pinmore House is nearly two miles south by road. The name Pinmore now applies more to the area of the former station.

The station building is now a house. No sidings remain.

To the north is Pinmore Tunnel and to the south Kinclair Viaduct.
