History

Opened as a single platform on the 8th September 1863. The line was doubled and a second platform added in 1874 with the opening of the Clifton Extension Railway. The route north to Narroways Hill was quadrupled in 1888, and south to Lawrence Hill in 1891. The station closed to goods on 29th November 1965. The number of tracks through the station was reduced to two from 20th February 1984. A mural was painted on the down platform in August 1999.
