Station History

Stamford Hill Station was opened by the Great Eastern Railway (GER) on their Stoke Newington and Edmonton Railway line on 22nd July 1872.

Grouping of the railways in 1923 saw the GER become part of the London North Eastern Railway and the station and line transferred to the new company. Nationalisation in 1948 saw the LNER absorbed into the British Railways Eastern Region.

Electrification of the line between Liverpool Street and Enfield/Cheshunt was completed on 21st November 1960.

On 31st May 2015, mainline services through the station changed ownership, with London Overground taking over from Abellio Greater Anglia
