Description

This was a two platform station with a loop on a single track line. The eastbound line and loop were a later addition of 1898. The main station building was on the original westbound platform.

There was a goods yard to the south, approached by a reversing spur to the east of the station.

The loop closed in 1926. After closure the platforms remained - and the line remained open until 1965.

The station platforms and main building (greatly extended) remain. It is now a guest house, The Old Station . A carriage stands between the platforms.
