Lower Edmonton railway station was a station in Edmonton, London. It was known as Lower Edmonton low level to distinguish it from neighbouring Lower Edmonton high level. It was opened in 1849 by the Eastern Counties Railway as part of the original branch to Enfield Town.

It was shut to passengers in 1939 after general poor service and poor use. After this it was used by LNER as a goods station, before it was finally closed in 1964. The spur it once stood on has also been closed and built on. Edmonton Green Shopping Centre now sits on the former site of the platforms.[1]

The high level station still stands, today known as Edmonton Green railway station.
