II
Circa 1850. Designed by J.R Hannaford. All wood construction. Train shed covering both tracks. Aisled, with wooden posts and ceiling. Corrugated iron roof with full length glazed vent. Offices on upside. Single storey with seven wooden casements, two and three light. Original bracketted canopy over entrance. Hipped corrugated iron roof with red brick stacks.

Largely unaltered example of a small station of the period and probably the last through train shed of its type in use on the Western Region. The line was constructed by the Wiltshire, Somerset and Weymouth Railway and opened 9 September 1850 having been previously taken over by the Great Western Railway.
