The Great Western Railway station was built around 1853 and used until the late 1800s, when it was replaced with a new station. The old station was moved further back from the tracks and converted to a freight terminal. It was brought back into sevice in 1900 after the second station burned to the ground. That lasted until 1902 when it was retired once again and used as a food processing depot. In 1997 it became home to Forks Road Pottery. The third and last station (built in 1902) was destroyed by an electrical fire in 1994.
