History[edit]

The original station was opened in late 1844 but was destroyed by fire in early 1849. The station was later re-built on the current site and opened in March 1878 and was known as "Hatfield Peveril" until 1880. There was a private station just to the west of the station for Boreham House between 1843 and 1877.[1]

The 1897 plan of the station shows 2 goods sidings on the upside at the London end and a further siding at the country end also on the up side.[1]

There was a refuge siding added at a later date on the down side at the London end.[2]

The goods traffic was ended on 27 June 1960.[3]
