    Streatham Hill railway station is one of three stations serving the district of Streatham, in the London Borough of Lambeth. The wooden station building at street level faces the busy Streatham High Road (A23) at the junction with Leigham Court Road. Services are operated by Southern.

    Access to the platforms - which are in a cutting below street level and which continue under a bridge beneath the road - is possible via a pair of staircases or lifts. A project to replace the staircases and introduce lift access was completed in 2009.

    History[]

    Streatham Hill railway station was opened by the West End of London and Crystal Palace Railway on 1 December 1856, originally being named simply Streatham. Trains were operated from the outset by the London, Brighton and South Coast Railway. At some stage it was renamed Streatham and Brixton Hill before finally settling with its present name in 1869.

    There is a depot for maintenance of the passenger carriages at the London end of the station.[specify] Some of the lighting gantries above the sidings are remains of the pioneering "overhead electric" power supply that the LB&SCR introduced on this line on 12 May 1911. This was abandoned in June 1928 when the Southern Railway replaced it with third rail electrification.
