The station was opened by British Rail in 1978 as an island platform with a covered footbridge leading to the station's exit. It once used to contain a glass waiting room/area, but this was later subjected to an arson attack by local youths. It is a 3 car stop. It has car parking spaces and once used to incorporate a bus interchange where the number 216 bus service would run to the station before continuing through Hattersley to the terminus or going to Hyde and Manchester.
The station has a manned ticket office at street level, which is staffed six days per week on a part-time basis (Mondays-Fridays 06:20 - 13:25, Saturdays 07:00 - 14:00, closed Sundays). Outside these times tickets must be purchased on the train or prior to travel. The only amenities at platform level are a brick shelter (with canopy), timetable posters and lighting. The entrance and platform are connected via a covered walkway with steps, so no level access is possible for mobility-impaired or wheelchair users.
Monday to Saturday during the daytime, trains run every 30 minutes to Manchester and to Hadfield; extra services run in the weekday business peaks, but trains run every hour after 20.00. On Sundays train services run every 30 minutes to Manchester and to Hadfield until the evening. Early morning, rush hour and late evening services start or terminate at Glossop.
