It was opened by the Stockport, Disley and Whaley Bridge Railway on 1 March 1858, as a result of a complaint from Colonel William Davenport, a local landowner, that the company had not honoured its initial promise to provide a station at Bramhall Lane (which was, at that time, just outside the boundary of Stockport Borough). A small passenger station was opened and named Davenport. Trade was slight and it closed in September 1859, to be reopened on 1 January 1862.
The station has a ticket office at street level, which is manned in the mornings through until early afternoon, six days per week (closed all day Sunday). At all other times, tickets must be bought on the train or prior to travel. Waiting shelters are provided at platform level on each side, whilst train running information is offered by means of CIS displays and timetable posters. No step-free access is available to either platform, as each one is linked to the ticket office and road via staircases.
A 3 trains per hour service operates towards Manchester Piccadilly northbound and Hazel Grove southbound Monday to Saturday daytime, with two trains per hour continuing to Buxton. During the evenings and all day Sundays, the service frequency drops to hourly to Buxton and twice-hourly to Manchester and Hazel Grove. Through running north of Manchester ceased at the May 2018 timetable change, but will resume from May 2019.
