Stoke Newington and Newington Green
This walk starts in Newington Green on the edge of Islington, which has a rich history. The second half of the walk is along Church St, an oasis of cafes, restaurants and pubs – a route featured in the Eurostar magazine in 2017. At one end is a medieval church and at the other the fabulously gothic Abney Park cemetery.
This Greet is focused on the regenerated Olympic Park area in Stratford and the historical parts of the surrounding area of East London.
