It was opened by the Stockport, Disley and Whaley Bridge Railway on 1 March 1858, as a result of a complaint from Colonel William Davenport, a local landowner, that the company had not honoured its initial promise to provide a station at Bramhall Lane (which was, at that time, just outside the boundary of Stockport Borough). A small passenger station was opened and named Davenport. Trade was slight and it closed in September 1859, to be reopened on 1 January 1862.
The station has a ticket office at street level, which is manned in the mornings through until early afternoon, six days per week (closed all day Sunday). At all other times, tickets must be bought on the train or prior to travel. Waiting shelters are provided at platform level on each side, whilst train running information is offered by means of CIS displays and timetable posters. No step-free access is available to either platform, as each one is linked to the ticket office and road via staircases.
Monday to Saturday there is generally a half-hourly service to Manchester Piccadilly northbound at xx:08 and xx:37 (the xx:37 continues to Blackpool North). Southbound there are services to Hazel Grove at xx:09 and xx:39, (with the xx:09 continuing to Buxton). Some northbound early morning and evening peak trains from Buxton also extend beyond Piccadilly to destinations such as Kirkby, Clitheroe, Wigan North Western and Barrow-in-Furness.
