Goswick station was opened in November 1870 when it was known as Windmill Hill Station, but it was renamed Goswick station on 1 January 1898. It was part of the East Coast Main Line (ECML) which ran from London to Edinburgh.
In 1907 Goswick was the site of an Express Goods train derailment.
On 15 September 1958 the station was closed to passengers, and on 10 August 1964 it was closed for Goods trains. Finally the signal box was closed on 24 March 1982.
Goswick is approximately 5 miles south of Berwick-upon-Tweed and adjacent to Goswick Sands which connect with Lindisfarne (Holy Island). The island is approximately 10 miles by road but only 2 miles walk along the footpath, across the Goswick sands and along the Holy Island causway.
