The station served Iron Acton village and was sited to the south west of it. It consisted of a single platform face and a large wooden station building. A freight-only branch serving an iron mine in Frampton Cotterell connected at the station. This closed in 1872 and a truncated section of this route served as a coal depot until closure on 10 June 1963.
The station was demolished in the 1960s. The part-remains of the platform survive, as does a crossing-keeper's cottage to the south of the station site. In mid 2013, the line beyond Yate Middle Jn was placed 'Out of Use'.
