It opened on 12 June 1848.[1] The station was expanded and the buildings were rebuilt in 1872.[2]

It closed in March 1907 following the opening of Morecambe Promenade. The station remained open to goods before closing at an unknown date and the site has since been redeveloped. Murals can be found depicting it in its heyday.
