The station opened on 19 June 1865 by the Sirhowy Railway after the conversion of the Sirhowy Tramroad to a standard gauge railway. The station had a signal box, which was eventually destroyed. Due to competition from bus services in the area, the station met its demise to passenger services on 13 June 1960, though the last train ran on the 11th. Goods traffic ceased on 8 February 1965.
Almost nothing of the station and route currently exists. The National Cycle Network route 467 between Blackwood and Hollybush follows a lot of former trackbed of the railway.
