The station was originally opened in 1861 by the ‘Stockton and Darlington Railway’ which became part of the ‘North Eastern Railway’ in 1863 but it could date from then until 1923 when the ‘North Eastern Railway’ became the ‘London and North Eastern Railway’

It is the work of Karl Striker although as of early 2013 the protective plastic has gone and it looked like the wall may be about to be repainted, as the Iron Ammonites were also down.
