The station layout is unusual in that the two platforms do not face each other but are on opposite sides of a level crossing.
The station was opened by the Northern and Eastern Railway in 1844. The main station building was abandoned by British Railways in 1978 and remained unoccupied until being converted into a restaurant. The main station building was given Grade II listed status on 30 April 1971.
