From West Hallam and the summit at Morley Tunnel, the line descended to Breadsall, on a gradient of 1 in 100.
The station itself was very close to the village and was provided with substantial brick buildings, including a two-storey station master's house and the usual single storey offices on the platforms.
The passenger service finished in 1953 and services on the line ended completely in 1964 (passenger services) and 1968 (goods).

The platforms and their buildings were gradually demolished, although traces remain. The single storey buildings became unsafe and were pulled down. The stationmaster's house survived until 1978 in an increasingly decrepit state until it became unsafe following an arson attack and it too was demolished.
