St MARY le BOW

St MARY le BOW
St MARY le BOW

There has been a church here since Saxon times, though the current one is about the 4th version, rebuilt having been bombed during WW2, modelled on Wren's design.  It has a rich history.  One part of the crypt is medieval. It is very grand inside, but most famous for its Bow bells - anyone born within earshot of them being deemed a cockney.
