Opened by the Great Eastern Railway it became part of the London and North Eastern Railway during the Grouping of 1923. The line then passed on to the Eastern Region of British Railways on nationalisation in 1948.
The station has the only passing loop on the Acle branch of the Wherry Line, and in times past was a coaling depot.
