History

First opened in 1891 by the Great Eastern Railway, the station was originally known as Forty Hill.  Forty Hill station closed in 1909 with a brief reopening between 1915-19 to serve the nearby munitions factory at Enfield Lock.

Turkey Street station reopened to passengers on 21 November 1960 after the line was electrified and ran under various companies until London Overground took over the line in May 2015.  in June 2017, the new entrance hall was opened bringing ticket gates to the station for the first time.

Notes:  The original 1891 station building still survives today as a newsagent and is located on Turkey Street itself just past the railway bridge.
