Devonshire Street was a short-lived railway station in the parish of Mile End Old Town, in the East End of London. It was opened on 29 June 1839 as a temporary London terminus of the Eastern Counties Railway (ECR) from Romford prior to the construction of Shoreditch station which became the permanent terminus. Devonshire Street was closed in 1840. In 1884 a new station called Globe Road & Devonshire Street opened close to the site of the closed Devonshire Street station.
The street after which the station was named was later incorporated into the northern part of Bancroft Road, running east-west next to the tracks. The station was situated at Devonshire Street's junction with Globe Road.
