The first station was opened on 2 January 1854, and was then modified in 1856 during the construction of the branch line to Usk. It was closed in 1955 following the withdrawal of passenger services on the line. It was located on the junction of the line with the Welsh Marches Line, 16 miles and 12 chains from Monmouth Troy. The station consisted of platforms on both lines, sidings and a station building, although the platforms on the mainline were taken out of use before the station's closure. The station building was demolished, but the signal box and junction remain intact.
