Friends of Harringay Stadium Slopes
Welcome to the Friends of Harringay Stadium Slopes. We are committed to protecting this Site of Importance for Nature Conservation (SINC). Read more below and join us and get involved!
History of the Stadium Slopes
Harringay Stadium was a greyhound and speedway racing venue that was demolished in 1987 along with the ice rink and boxing arena next door, to make way for the Arena Shopping Park.
A steep bank runs along the south and east sides of the Arena Shopping Park. This bank has remained undeveloped and provides an important contribution to the natural health of the borough.
Site of Importance for Nature Conservation
London’s most valuable and special places for wildlife are recognised by the Mayor and London borough councils as Sites of Importance for Nature Conservation (SINCs). The Harringay Stadium Slopes was designated a SINC in 2002.
In addition the importance of the trees growing along the slopes has been recognised in numerous Tree Protection Orders (TPOs).
