Appraisal

Enfield Station was built to serve the Midland Great Western Railway on the Dublin to Galway line. The signal box forms part of a group with the related structures at Enfield railway station. This twentieth-century building is an interesting addition to the predominantly nineteenth-century station complex. The variety of render finishes adds textural interest to the building.
