It was built in 1863 for the LNWR on its line from Whaley Bridge to Buxton. as an extension of the Stockport, Disley and Whaley Bridge Railway.

However, with the closure of the ex Midland route from Chinley to Rowsley to passenger traffic in 1967, Central station was closed.

The former station master's house is currently used as a restaurant called "Brief Encounter".
