The station was built by the Lancaster and Carlisle Railway, and was opened on 17 December 1846.
Up until August 2006 the station was probably unique in that although being a manned main line station it did not have electronic departure boards or TV screens depicting departures/arrivals but only a handwritten departure board in the waiting room/ticket office.It was also the last station in the UK where mail was collected by a moving train.
