Description

This was a two platform station built on an embankment. To the west and north of the line was a goods yard served from the east. The main station building, of two storeys, was on the eastbound platform.

The main building has survived and is now a house. The waiting room on the westbound platform has not survived but the building out of the platform to support it can still be seen.
