Winchmore Hill railway station is in Station Road (which, before the arrival of the railway, was known as "Middle Lane"), Winchmore Hill in the London Borough of Enfield in North London, England, in Travelcard Zone 4. It is 14 km (8.7 mi) north of Moorgate on the Hertford Loop Line. The station, and all trains serving it are operated by Great Northern. Originally, upon opening in 1871, the station building was almost identical to that at neighbouring Palmers Green. However, in 1965 the northbound side of the building was demolished due to subsidence. In the 1970s the station boasted, on its southbound platform, a small newsagent and sweet shop, just beyond the base of the stairs down to the platform, but by 1980 this shop had been dismantled.
At weekends, the service is a half-hourly service to Moorgate & Hertford North and an hourly service to Stevenage. Southbound trains at this time (and after 22.00 on weekdays) used to run to Kings Cross, but now use the Moorgate branch throughout until end of service.
