The station was opened by the Charnwood Forest Railway (CFR) on 16 April 1883.[1] It was the terminus of their line from Coalville.[2] The CFR was operated by the London and North Western Railway (LNWR) from the outset, but remained independent until absorbed into the London, Midland and Scottish Railway (LMS), of which the LNWR was a constituent, at the 1923 Grouping.[3]

The LMS had another station in Loughborough, and they closed the former CFR station on 13 April 1931.[1]
