Ebley Crossing Halt was opened on 12 October 1903 on what is now the Golden Valley Line between Stroud and Stonehouse. This line was opened in 1845 as the Cheltenham and Great Western Union Railway from Swindon to Gloucester and this was one of many small stations and halts built on this line for the local passenger service.
The halt was between Stroud and Stonehouse, and originally consisted of a pair of ground level platforms, but these were subsequently replaced by standard height platforms along with GWR pagoda style shelters. The platforms were later reconstructed in concrete and the down platform had a basic metal shelter. Access to the halt was from the adjacent foot crossing and for a while, a small wooden ticket office on the down side of the Stroud end of the platform, adjacent to the foot crossing.
Closure of the halt came on 2 November 1964 following the withdrawal of local stopping passenger services on the line. No trace of the halt remains today, although the foot crossing still exists.
