This was a two platform station. The main station building was on the southbound platform.
There was a small goods yard on the east side, approached from the south. The signal box was at the south end of the southbound platform with the yard to its east. The line runs on an embankment.
The station closed to passengers in 1960 and the box closed in 1972.
The area is of farmed land with relatively low population. The location is perhaps better known as Newton, the name of the small village to the west. The former station is also sometimes referred to as Newton Wamphray. Wamphray Church is just under two miles to the north east
The station house remains in use as a house. The gable ends are unusual and are not quite crow stepped, having slopes between the steps.
