The section of the Sheffield, Ashton-under-Lyne and Manchester Railway (SA&MR) between Dinting (then known as Glossop) and Woodhead opened to public traffic on 8 August 1844, but initially there was no station between Hadfield and Woodhead. At the start of 1847, the SA&MR amalgamated with other companies to form the Manchester, Sheffield and Lincolnshire Railway (MS&LR).
A local millowner, Brown & Co., donated £50 towards the cost of providing a station at Crowden; plans were drawn up in April 1857, but the MS&LR decided that the sum of £400 was too much and dropped the idea; however, they did not return the donation, and when Brown & Co. complained in May 1860 about their loss, the plan was revived, and the station was built, the MS&LR meeting the balance of the £450 total cost. George Benton of Glossop was contracted for the building work, but the necessary road improvements were provided by Manchester Corporation, the station being adjacent to the dam at the lower end of the Woodhead Reservoir, which belonged to Manchester Corporation. The station was opened on 1 July 1861.
The station was closed on 4 February 1957 but passenger trains continued to pass through the station until January 1970 and the line was closed completely in July 1981.
