Opened with what was known as the "New Line", between Coningsby Junction and Bellwater Junctions, in 1913, the line and station closed in 1970.

Serving such a rural area it unusually became a terminus for some trains in the year before closure.

There were three trains calling here from Lincoln to Skegness with a further three, to and from Lincoln, terminating here.
