The station was opened on 1 July 1907 by public demand, where the road from Rotherham to Clowne road below the line and the Waleswood Curve, a connection from the Derbyshire Lines of the Manchester, Sheffield and Lincolnshire Railway at Killamarsh, joins the east-west main line. It was adjacent to Waleswood Colliery.
The station booking hall suffered a major fire on 24 May 1953, when much internal damage was caused and rail traffic was disrupted.
The station was closed on 7 March 1955 and has since been demolished.
