Historyedit

The station was built in 1850 and served by the South Staffordshire Railway, which later became London and North Western Railwayand in 1923 became London, Midland and Scottish Railway through amalgamation of the station shared the name Great Bridge with its Great Western Railway counterpart built in 1866 North was appended to the name of the station just after nationalization

Passenger usage declined in the early 1880s, and the line became mainly freight in 1887 It remained open for goods traffic as the district became highly industrialized in the heyday of the Black Country's industrial past Local industry declined after World War II and road transport became more common British Rail closed the station to passengers through the Beeching Axe in 1964, but it continued as a freight station for local factories until 1972 Goods trains continued to pass through the site of the station until 1993 By that date no sign of the station or the goods yard remained It is now derelict and mostly fenced off
