The station was opened on 19 June 1865 by the Sirhowy Railway, upon completion of the work to convert the former Sirhowy Tramroad (a plateway of 4 ft 2 in (1,270 mm) gauge) into a standard-gauge railway. The company got into financial difficulties, and was leased to the London and North Western Railway in 1875. Therefore, it became part of the London, Midland and Scottish Railway during the Grouping of 1923. It was renamed Argoed Halt on 29 September 1941. Passing on to the Western Region of British Railways on nationalisation in 1948, it was then closed by the British Transport Commission on 13 June 1960.
