White Hart Lane was opened on 22 July 1872 as part of the Stoke Newington & Edmonton Railway, owned by the Great Eastern Railway, as part of their line to Enfield Town.
Early history of the station is very sparse and nothing of note has been recorded.
Ownership of White Hart Lane passed from Abellio Greater Anglia to London Overground in May 2015.
White Hart Lane station is very close to Tottenham Hotspur Football Club’s ground, located on Tottenham High Road. In 2016, Tottenham Hotspur requested that TfL rename the station after the football club. This is understood to be under consideration and may be implemented when the new football stadium has been constructed.
As part of the regeneration of the area, in mid 2017, Transport for London announced the redevelopment of White Hart Lane, with step free access, a new ticket hall and also a new station entrance planned as part of the works. The new station should open to passengers in Spring 2019.
