The village of Maron is divided into two areas. The modern village has grown up around the station at the summit of Gordon's Hill, while older buildings are built onto the steep hillside in terraces.
The station is a compulsory stop for all "down", unfitted or loosely-coupled goods to "pin down" brakes. Bankers, after assisting "up" trains, reverse over the points at the station onto the "down" line for the run back to Wellsworth.
To the north of Maron is Boulder Quarry, which has long since been closed down.
