This station was built by an associated company of the GWR - the Wiltshire, Somerset & Weymouth Railway - on a projected line which was part of a war over territory with the London & South Western.
The station was completed in 1848 but due to the financial crisis of that time, no track was laid for nine years. For that period of time the station was idle and the nearest active station was Trowbridge, two miles away. It is a typical design by Brunel for small town stations, and in this case reflects the prevailing style of the town in its pale Bath Stone.
