Built close to the village, Wellow station consisted of two platforms with the main station buildings being on the up platform, these being built of grey limestone with slate roofs. The down platform had just a small wooden waiting shelter. Just to the North of the station there was a level crossing, and at one time a siding. At the Southern end of the station on the up line there were also sidings. These were used quite heavily by the numerous local industries producing goods such as agricultural equipment, watercress and corn.
