Track was laid through this site in 1854 as part of the London, Tilbury and Southend Railway line from Forest Gate Junction on to Barking. However it wasn’t until 9 July 1894 that a station was opened here by the Tottenham and Forest Gate Railway on their new line to Tottenham beginning at a junction just north of this site. This was a joint venture with the Midland Railway and services were operated by both companies. Initially the station had a short spur line to East Ham which was served sporadically (but mostly by Midland Railway trains) although services primarily continued to Barking.
