The Medway Valley Line opened from Paddock Wood to Maidstone on 25 September 1844. In the 1900s, a branch line was constructed to serve Tovil Goods station, the only part of the Headcorn and Maidstone Junction Light Railway ever constructed. Tovil station was located just after the junction of the branch from Tovil Goods, which faced towards Maidstone West. Tovil signal box closed in 1929. The station closed in 1943. The short branch line to Tovil Goods closed in 1977.
In 2008, it was suggested that the station should be re-opened.
