Rectory Road is a London Overground station on the Lea Valley Lines, located in Stoke Newington in the north-west of the London Borough of Hackney, north London. It is 3 miles 64 chains (6.1 km) down-line from London Liverpool Street and is situated between Hackney Downs and Stoke Newington stations. Its three-letter station code is REC and it is in Travelcard zone 2.
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.
London Buses routes 67, 76, 149, 243 and 276 serve the station.
