HistoryEdit

The station was opened on 1 May 1905 by the Great Western Railway.[1] It was situated on the south side of the B5097. It had no station buildings or any other facilities but nearby was The Pant Brickworks, which was served by rail. The station closed on 22 March 1915 after losing to the competition of the newly introduced bus services but the section of the line remained open to serve the brick works. The station's final use was a rail tour on 18 April 1959. The section of the line finally closed on 14 October 1963.[2]
