History

Rectory Road was opened by the Great Eastern Railway owned Stoke Newington & Edmonton Railway on 27 May 1872 on their line from Hackney Downs to Lower Edmonton.

The station itself continued unchanged from it’s opening day right up to the mid 1980s, when the station was refurbished by the Greater London Council. Works included building a new ticket office, street level buildings, new staircases and modern platform shelters.

Operation of the station passed from Abellio Greater Anglia to London Overground in May 2015.
