When the original 1891 station opened, Southbury station in the London Borough of Enfield was known as Churchbury, and the area was largely rural. Following years of closure, the station reopened in 1960 and is now very much part of the capital, in Travelcard Zone 5 on the Lea Valley Line. Trains using Southbury head to Cheshunt and London Liverpool Street every half hour. The station is in the thick of North London action. Upon exiting, visitors will find a couple of local shops, with a launderette, newsagents and cafe, about a two-minute walk away, and a ten-minute walk will deliver them to Enfield Retail Park with the larger out-of-town type of shop. Otherwise, Southbury is mainly a residential area, with Southbury Leisure Centre the main draw with a modern gym and sauna facilities. Those who prefer the great outdoors might head to Ponders End Recreation Ground or Durants Park, both about 15 minutes away.
