East and West Bank Nature Reserve

The East and West Bank nature reserves are railway sidings running along the sides of the Liverpool Street to Enfield railway line in the Stamford Hill area. The site is an important green corridor within a heavily built-up area.

The user group helps to keep the reserve free from litter, and to increase biodiversity in the area by planting native tree and flower species beneficial to wildlife.
