Neighbourhood: Stoke Newington

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.
