The station was built on the Birmingham and Gloucester Railway's Camp Hill Line, and operated between 1840 and 1941. On opening, it was known as Moseley Station. On the opening of Moseley station in 1867, the station was renamed. The station finally closed to passengers in 1941 due to the Second World War, although it was used for freight into the 1960s. It was demolished at some point thereafter.
In 2019, the project to re-open the stations at Moseley, Kings Heath and Hazelwell received £15m in Government funding, with construction due to start in 2020 and aimed for completion in time for the 2022 Commonwealth Games.
