SNARESBROOK STATION

ALTERNATIVE NAME:  SNARESBROOK AND WANSTEAD STATION
DESCRIPTION + /

The railway station at Snaresbrook opened in 1856 as an intermediate station on the Stratford-Loughton section of the steam operated Eastern Counties Railway, which ultimately became part of the London and North Eastern Railway in 1921. The eastwards extension of the Central line as part of the 1935-40 New Works Programme took in former LNER routes. Snaresbrook was first served by Central line trains on 14th December 1947 as part of an extension from Leytonstone to Woodford/Newbury Park. The brick built station building was little altered from its steam days, apart from the ubiquitous station name roundels announcing the arrival of the Underground.
