The line from Edmonton via Lower Edmonton to the centre of Enfield opened on 1st March 1849. The line from Bury Street Junction, north of Edmonton Green, to Cheshunt was opened by the Great Eastern Railway on 1st October 1891 and this is the line seen here. When it was opened the line was known as the Churchbury Loop. The district was still predominantly rural, and the coming of the tram to Waltham Cross in 1904 saw the railway unable to compete. Passenger services ceased on 1st October 1909, but were reinstated for munitions workers between 1st March 1915 and 1st July 1919.

After that the line was used only by goods trains until electrified as part of a wider scheme at the start of the 1960s. The line is now known as the Southbury Loop. On 31st May 2015 all services here became part of the London Overground network.

This is the view from Brick Lane bridge. The next station in this direction is Turkey Street.
