Crews Hill railway station is in Crews Hill in the London Borough of Enfield in north London, in Travelcard Zone 6. The station, and all trains serving it, is operated by Thameslink and Great Northern. The station was opened on 4 April 1910. The station is the most northerly railway station in London.

Geography[edit]

Crews Hill is a railway station in Enfield in the postcode EN2; it is on an access road just off Cattlegate Road and is very close to the M25. A subway links the down (northbound) platform with the entrance on the up (southbound) side.

Services[edit]

The service from the station runs to Moorgate on weekdays until about 9:30 pm, and into London King's Cross after 9:30 pm Mondays to Fridays and all day on Saturdays and Sundays. Normally the service uses Class 313 EMUs, as these are the only units cleared to Moorgate, although on weekends sometimes Class 317 EMUs are used instead.

The typical off-peak service is three trains per hour to Moorgate, and three trains per hour to Hertford North, with one per hour extended to Letchworth Garden City via Stevenage. In the evenings, some trains skip the station to run fast between Gordon Hill and Cuffley.

The station is completely unstaffed and there is no ticket machine available. As a result, the station is not a penalty fares station.[2]

Since 2 January 2010, Oyster cards can be used at the station.
