The station was opened in 1863 by the Stourbridge Railway, on the Stourbridge to Old Hill line, which was later taken over by Great Western Railway. Historically the station is known as Cradley, pronounced Crayd-ley. Cradley Heath, pronounced Craig-ley Aith, was originally an area of heath between Cradley, Netherton and Old Hill. Cradley Heath residents had grazing rights, with annual payments made to the lord of the manor.
