It was situated on a down grade between Kimberley East railway station and the crossing of the Erewash Valley, which it crossed by means of the impressive Bennerley Viaduct which has been partly preserved. Nearby was Awsworth Junction where a branch led north towards Eastwood and Langley Mill and Pinxton
Opened by the Great Northern Railway, it became part of the London and North Eastern Railway during the Grouping of 1923. The station then passed to the London Midland Region of British Railways on nationalisation in 1948.
It was then closed by the British Railways Board.
