The station opened on 19 May 1853 and was sited between the villages of Sledmere and Fimber. It was closed to passengers on 5 June 1950 but remained open for goods traffic until 18 October 1958. The station was named "Fimber" until March 1858, when it briefly became "Sledmere" until May 1859, when it became "Sledmere and Fimber" until final closure of the line.
In October 2008, the Yorkshire Wolds Railway was formed by a group of enthusiasts aiming to restore at least a section of the former M&D branch as a heritage tourist attraction. They are restoring a section of the railway near the original Sledmere and Fimber railway station.
