Opened by the Midland Railway on the Syston and Peterborough Railway, it became part of the London, Midland and Scottish Railway during the Grouping of 1923. The station then passed on to the London Midland Region of British Railways on nationalisation in 1948. It was then closed by the British Railways Board.
Trains still pass the site on the Birmingham to Peterborough line.Former Services
