History

The line from Bury Street Junction, north of Edmonton Green, to Cheshunt was opened by the Great Eastern Railway on 1 October 1891 when this station opened as Churchbury. The line was known as the Churchbury Loop.

The district was still predominantly rural, and the coming of the tram to Waltham Cross in 1904 saw the railway unable to compete. Passenger services ceased on 1 October 1909, but were reinstated for munitions workers between 1 March 1915 and 1 July 1919.

After that the line was used only by goods trains until electrified as part of a wider scheme, and the station reopened as Southbury on 21 November 1960. The line is now known as the Southbury Loop.

On 31 May 2015 Management of the station transferred from Abellio Greater Anglia to London Overground.
