Description

Butterfield Green is a small local park in Stoke Newington. A community orchard was planted on the site by local people in 2007 and this won a British Urban Regeneration Award (BURA) in 2008 for its achievements.

The park holds a Green Flag Award. The awards are given to the best green spaces in the country and are awarded each year to make sure the quality of the green space remains high.

The Green takes its name from William Butterfield, the architect of St Matthias Church on Newington Green. The area was first developed in the C19th but the Green is surrounded by post-war council housing of the late 1940s/50s and the park was created when houses that occupied the sites of the various parts that make up the Green were demolished.

An old footpath runs between Butterfield Green and blocks of flats. A community orchard was planted on the site by local people in 2007.
