In common with the other stations on this line, the buildings were of timber, although the platforms were of conventional construction. From Parsley Hay to Ashbourne the line was single with passing loops at the stations, though provision was made for doubling which never occurred. A hazard for enginemen was that it was built on a gradient of 1 in 60.
Regular passenger services ended in 1954, though excursions continued until 1963, particularly for the annual Well dressing. Freight continued until October of that year, the track to Ashbourne finally being lifted in 1964
The track bed from Ashbourne to Parsley Hay was acquired by Derbyshire County Council and the Peak National Park in 1968 for a cycle and walking route. This, the Tissington Trail, was one of the first of such ventures in the country. Later, Ashbourne Tunnel was acquired by Sustrans.
