The station opened on 1 October 1906; the last station on the line to open. It was built as part of an improvement programme undertaken after the Great Western Railway's acquisition of the line on 2 July 1906.
Until 1934, the station was staffed. In September 1956, Newbury West Fields Halt was removed from the rail timetables but continued to carry passengers, small goods, and milk. The station closed on 4 February 1957, the first on the line to do so.
