The station was opened on 29 May 1854 on the Bristol and Gloucester Railway when that railway, which had opened in 1844, was being converted from broad gauge to the standard gauge used by its new owner, the Midland Railway.
Haresfield served only the Midland Railway tracks: although the Great Western Railway's Swindon to Gloucester services passed on parallel tracks to the east of the Midland lines, the GWR did not build a station and passengers on the rather narrow platforms at Haresfield were screened from passing GWR trains by wooden barriers.
Haresfield never provided any freight facilities and it closed to passenger services on 4 January 1965 along with other stations on the Bristol to Gloucester line. Today, the four tracks (two Midland and two GWR) have been realigned and all trace of the station has been obliterated.
