The station was opened as Cromford Bridge by the Manchester, Buxton, Matlock & Midlands Junction Railway in 1849. The station originally had two platforms but one was taken out of use when the line was singled. The station building on this platform is now a holiday cottage. The station building on the in-use platform is the original station building and is Grade II listed. It is now used as an office.

The cover of Oasis' 1995 single "Some might say" features the station and in particular the holiday cottage.
