It opened on 1 June 1859 and closed to passengers in 1952, and to freight in 1963. The first company to operate trains to the station was the Eastern Counties Railway, which had taken over from the East Suffolk Railway Company that built the branch line.
The station was served by trains that operated between Framlingham and Wickham Market operated by the Great Eastern Railway between 1862 and December 1922, the London and North Eastern Railway (1923 to 1947) and British Railways until the withdrawal of passenger services in November 1952.
Goods services were withdrawn in April 1963.
The station dealt with significant goods traffic until the 1950s and also had a small single tracked engine shed where the branch engine was kept overnight. This was a sub shed belonging to the Ipswich Locomotive District and on 1 January 1922 GER Class C32 (later LNER F3) 2-4-2T no 1066 was allocated there.
