First opened in 1839 by Eastern Counties Railway (ECR), the original building was located on Angel Lane and the following year, the Northern and Eastern Railway opened up a section of its line from Broxbourne to join the ECR line at Stratford, with a station and railway works constructed adjacent to the Broxbourne line. There was a major reconstruction in 1877, a new building designed by Thomas Bennet was opened in 1948 and in the late 1990s there was a further significant rebuilding project, when the huge new steel and glass building that today’s passengers are familiar with was put in place.
