Opened on the Newcastle and Berwick Railway.
This was a two platform station on the north side of a level crossing. The fine two storey station building was on the northbound platform.
There was a goods yard on the west side, approached from the north, with sidings and coal drops.
On the east side was a loop, enclosing the southbound platform, and large goods shed.
The line northwards was quadrupled (the Crag Mill Loops). A siding, accessed by a reversing spur, served Easington Quarry (or Slater Quarry) to the east. Further sidings were added to serve a grain depot on the west side of the station.
The station had a gantry signal box mounted over the line just north of the level crossing.
Cragg Mill, a short lived station and later a siding, was to the north.
The station closed in 1968.
The station building is now 'Old Station House B&B '.
A former railway cottage to the east of the level crossing is now 'The Old Station Cottage ' accommodation.
Belford itself is a mile to the west.
