The station was opened by the North Staffordshire Railway in 1848 as Tutbury. The station was closed in 1966 but re-opened in 1989, this time as Tutbury & Hatton [1].

The original station had two facing platforms, one being an island platform with a bay for services to Burton-on-Trent. The current station has split platforms either side of a level crossing. The crossing is controlled by a signal box.

Tutbury once had extensive sidings both sides of it including for the condensed milk factory next to the line which is now owned by Nestlé (and makes coffee) [2]. Tutbury & Hatton is managed by East Midlands Trains who operate an hourly service in both directions between Derby and Stoke-on-Trent or Crewe. The station nowadays is a typical unmanned one with a couple of bus shelters and little else, the original station's buildings are now long gone.
