History

The station was opened on 20 July 1874 and closed to freight on 10 June 1963 and completely on 7 March 1966. There were two platforms on the double track main line, the main station buildings being on the southern down platform. There was at one time a 2'6" gauge industrial railway linking the goods yard with Oakhill Brewery, two and a half miles away. This line closed in 1921.

Future Plans

The station will be rebuilt when the line to Bath reopens. The old Oakhill Brewery line could also be restored as a narrow gauge passenger feeder route eventually.
