Rectory Road railway station is a railway station in Stoke Newington in the London Borough of Hackney, North London, United Kingdom.

It is located on the Seven Sisters branch of the Lea Valley Lines, between Stoke Newington and Hackney Downs. It is in Zone 2 and has two platforms.

Trains run south to Liverpool Street and north to Enfield Town and Cheshunt.

The ticket office, street buildings, staircases and platform shelters were all built in the mid-1980s in works funded by the Greater London Council (along with other stations in the 'tube-less' Borough of Hackney). These elaborate structures were very different from the low-maintenance changes further up the line at the same time and feature the British Rail logo worked into the brickwork at Street level.

On 31 May 2015 the station and all services that call here, transferred from Abellio Greater Anglia to London Overground Rail Operations.[2][3]


London Buses route 276 serves the station.
