History

1845 The first station was a temporary terminus opened on 20 September 1845. The station building has been virtually unchanged since then, earning it a Grade II listed builing status.
1860 A clock bell was cast and hung in a small turret above the station.
2018 The tower was inspected by Adam Brady who reported on the Mears bell and the clock.
