Crouch Hill railway station
Crouch Hill railway station is a railway station on Crouch Hill between Stroud Green and Crouch End, North London. It is on the Gospel Oak to Barking line between Upper Holloway and Harringay Green Lanes. Whilst the station has no direct interchange to a tube station, Finsbury Park station is only a ten minute walk away along Stroud Green Road.

Trains run once every 30 minutes in each direction, towards either Gospel Oak or Barking. All trains from the station are operated by London Overground. Due to high demands at peak times, the service increases to every 20 minutes. From January 2010, service frequencys were increased still further from a 20 minute frequency in the peak period to a 15 minute frequency. Also changes were made to increase the frequency at busy times on Saturday's to a train every 20 minutes.

Station Infrastructure
Platform 1 is for trains toward Gospel Oak and Platform 2 is for trains toward Barking. This station does not have a ticket office thus it is unmanned except for the security office which is not officially part of the station but is on its premises. This station has two ticket and two Oyster card machines; one for each platform as well as two waiting rooms. This station has a multitude of seats in a variety of places on each platform. The platforms themselves are below ground level so they are only reachable by stairs. Platform 2 is easily reached as the stairs are found directly in the vicinity of the station signage. Platform 1 is a little harder to access as it is around a corner directly to the south of the Platform 2 entrance. Please note since November 2007 onward it has installed station assistant staff available between 6.15 AM till 9 PM to help customers' queries about tickets, travel and general enquiries about their journey or London Overground in general or particular. This has been done for other stations along the rest of the Gospel Oak to Barking Line with the exception of Barking and Blackhorse Road respectively. Blackhorse Road station is instead staffed by London Underground and at Barking by c2c employees as these stations are the only stations on the line with a direct interchange to a London Underground line.
