Abney Park Cemetery
Abney Park Cemetery is located in Stoke Newington within the London Borough of Hackney and is one of the so-called ‘Magnificent Seven’ Victorian Cemeteries in London. The park and the mortuary chapel are both listed on the Historic England ‘Heritage at Risk‘ Register. The scheme focuses on the works needed for Abney Park to become a self-sufficient, vibrant and engaging place that can continue improving far into the future and a place that celebrates its delicate balance of built and natural heritage.
The works include improvements to the Chapel to operate as a multi use facility throughout the year. The settings of the listed lodges will be enhanced, poor facilities will be replaced and the addition of an interpretation cafe and community space.
