The station was built in 1876 by the Monmouth and Wye Valley Railway and was taken over by the Great Western Railway in 1908. The engineers of the line were S H Yockney and Son of Westminster and the contractors were Messrs Reed Bros of London. It was a single track line with Tintern station as one of the passing places. The station was closed in 1959 and is now a visitor centre belonging to Monmouthshire County Council.
