The railway station was opened on 31 May 1847 but in a remote location, and was little used. The western platform was accessed by a pathway down from Ringley Road, the east platform was accessed by a subway at the southern end of the station.
In 1879 the railway station was the location of the apparent suicide of a collier who had been in the custody of a police officer for assaulting his wife. The collier had jumped in front of an approaching train and was crushed to death, almost dragging the officer along with him. A later inquest in Salford returned an open verdict.
