The station opened in August 1856 with the line's extension to Silloth. The North British Railway leased the line and the station in 1862 and subsequently took it over in 1880. In 1923 the station became part of the London and North Eastern Railway and became part of British Railways after nationalisation in 1948. The station closed with the line on 7 September 1964.

The platform has been demolished, but in 2013 the station house still existed as a private residence.
