The Station was built by the Chester and Holyhead Railway (C&HR) and opened in January 1849. The C&HR was acquired by the London and North Western Railway (LNWR) on 1 January 1859 and the LNWR was merged into the London Midland and Scottish Railway on 1 January 1923.
The main station building was located on the north side of the line, serving eastbound trains. There was a small shelter on the Holyhead bound platform.
There were two signal boxes close to the station, one of which remains in use. It is located on the north side of the line at the east end of the old station site and adjacent to a level crossing which is now guarded by lifting barriers.
