Theydon Bois is a London Underground station in the Epping Forest district of Essex. It is served by the Central line and is between Debden and Epping. For the purposes of fare charging it is in Zone 6.
The station was opened as "Theydon" by the Great Eastern Railway (GER) on 24 April 1865, as an intermediate station on their Loughton-Ongar extension; the GER became part of the London and North Eastern Railway (LNER) in 1923. 'Milk trains' to Liverpool Street were a regular feature in the timetable until the underpass from Leyton to Stratford was built.
As part of the New Works Programme, 1935-1940, the LNER branch was transferred to London Underground, to form the part of the eastern extension of the Central line.
The station today
The station was one of the first on the Underground network to operate without a staffed ticket office. However, there is now a new ticket office operating.
