Description

This was a two platform station on the north side of a level crossing. The station and level crossing no longer exist.

The main station building was on the northbound platform. The goods yard on the west side, approached by reversal from the north. A signal box was on the east side of the line, south of the crossing. Early spellings for the station included Plessy and Plessary.

The area was served by the Plessey Waggonway, an early mineral line. A large opencast site, Shotton Surface Mine on the west side of the former station, continues mining in the area.
