History[edit]

Edmonton Green was opened near a station known as Lower Edmonton (low level) on 22 July 1872 by the Great Eastern Railway (GER) on its new, more direct line from London. Edmonton Green was renamed Lower Edmonton (high level) on 1 July 1883, with the suffix being dropped when the low level station closed. The original name of Edmonton Green was re-adopted in 1992 as being more indicative of the area served and to promote the nearby Edmonton Green Shopping Centre.

The ticket hall was rebuilt in the early 1980s, and barriers were installed in 2012. Lifts to the platform level became operational in 2015.

In 2015 the Lea Valley Lines transferred from Abellio Greater Anglia operation to London Overground.[3][4] This resulted in the ability of entitled Freedom Pass holders to use their passes at any time, as on the Underground. Edmonton Green was also then added to the Tube map.
