The station opened on 1 March 1982 - there had previously been a station of the same name situated a short distance further north that had been opened by the LNER in 1937, but this closed in November 1967. The line was electrified in 1989.
The station is unstaffed and has two wooden platforms, with waiting shelters on each side. There is a ticket machine in place to allow intending passengers to buy these prior to boarding or collect advance purchase tickets. A customer help point is located on platform 2 and running information is also provided by means of digital CIS displays, timetable posters and automated train announcements. Step-free access to both platforms is possible via ramps from the main road.
On Monday to Saturdays, a half-hourly service operates towards Wakefield Westgate and Leeds and an hourly service operates both to Doncaster and to Sheffield.
On Sundays, an hourly service operates to Wakefield Westgate and Leeds and a two-hourly service to Doncaster and Sheffield respectively.
