HistoryEdit

The station opened as Broad Marston Halte on 17 October 1904 by the Great Western Railway. The spelling of the suffix 'halte' was later corrected to 'halt'[when?]. It initially had only one platform but a second one was added on 28 April 1907. The station closed on 14 July 1916, closing as a wartime economy measure but never opening again.[1][2]
