Stoke Newington Reservoirs and Woodberry Wetlands are a unique, urban wildlife site in north Hackney, London. Completed in 1833 there are 17 hectares of open water - Hackney's largest wetland area. They were legally protected in 1986 by Hackney Council as a Site of Metropolitan Importance for Conservation - the top tier in London. TeRNS
The New River Path runs for about one kilometre along the north side of the site with good views of both basins. Stoke Newington wildlife TeRNS

TeRNS formed during the Save the Reservoirs Campaign of the 1980s & 90s, playing a small part when Stoke Newington Reservoirs were threatened by building development.
After the campaign wound up in 2005 TeRNS continued until pledges made to open the site were fulfilled, finally disbanding in May 2016 when the East reservoir was opened as Woodberry Wetlands (photo) by Sir David Attenborough.
Please send notable wildlife records to London Wildlife Trust (LWT) or London Natural History Society (LNHS).
