Midweek Explorers are visiting and exploring Abney Park Cemetery, in Stoke Newington.

About this event

This month, Midweek Explorers are visiting and exploring Abney Park Cemetery in Stoke Newington. 

Meeting Point: Our meeting point is the cafe '215 Hackney', 215 Stoke Newington High Street, London N16 0LH, which is located just beside the entrance to Abney on the Stoke Newington High Street. We plan to be ready to leave at 11:00.

Getting there: Stoke Newington Railway Station is 200 yards from the main entrance on Stoke Newington High Street and has level access.  Stoke Newington is on the Overground lines from Liverpool Street to Enfield & Cheshunt. Many buses (route numbers 72, 243 amongst others) serve the area too.

Here's some background to whet your appetite! Abney Park in Stoke Newington, one of the ‘Magnificent Seven’ garden cemeteries of London, is a woodland memorial park and Local Nature Reserve, managed by the London Borough of Hackney. There is free public access to the park throughout the year so everyone can come and enjoy this oasis of peace and greenery with a fascinating history.  Possibly its best known 'residents' are William and Catherine Booth, founders of the Salvation Army  htps://abneypark.org

After we have explored the Cemetery, you may wish to have another coffee or lunch, ,explore the High Street and area around Stoke Newington Common, or do what we did on our recce and take the bus back to the centre of town, taking in the City sights from the top deck!
