Abney Park Cemetery

Abney Park was the first designated local nature reserve in Hackney. The cemetery is going through a big restoration project which will improve their facilities and boost their biodiversity.

This is a great spot to find fungi, as there’s plenty of ancient rotting wood around.

Although they don’t offer sessions for schools, the entry is free and you can check talks and guided tours about it’s ecology here.
