The station is unmanned - there is no ticket office nor are there any platform entry barriers. Passengers must purchase tickets on board trains.

Services[edit]

The typical service pattern is one train approximately every two hours in each direction (with extras at weekday peak times).

The current Sunday service is very limited, with just two trains each way calling. A normal weekday service operates on most Bank Holidays.[1]
