Opened by the London and North Western Railway in October 1905, it became part of the London, Midland and Scottish Railway in the 1923 Grouping The station passed to the London Midland Region of British Railways on nationalisation in 1948

It was built initially as one of seven new halts for a steam rail motor service between Bedford & Bletchley inaugurated in the autumn of 1905 and was initially constructed of old sleepers; it temporarily closed for two years January 1917-May 1919 as a World War 1 economy measure1 Under LMS auspices, it had its platforms rebuilt and these were lengthened again by BR in 1959
