The station was opened by the North Staffordshire Railway. The opening date is unsure but the first record of the station in Bradshaw's is in February 1854 and from 1862 it was also served by Great Northern Railway on the route between Stafford and Grantham line.
The station was closed by the British Transport Commission in 1958.
The platforms are still in place today[when?] and the station masters cottage is now in private residence although the platforms have become overgrown in recent years. Trains on the Crewe to Derby Line still pass through the station.
