Opened by the Great Western Railway on 9 July 1923 and originally named Gogarth Halt, it had a short wooden platform with no shelter. The station passed on to the London Midland Region of British Railways on nationalisation in 1948. Renamed Gogarth on 6 May 1968, it was officially closed by the British Railways Board on 30 September 1985, the last train having stopped on 14 May 1984.
The site today
Trains on the Cambrian Line pass the site of the former halt but there is no trace of its existence.
