Brief Description

Built 'in the King's Highway', it remains on an island site at the east end of the busy Bow Road, and is the only reminder of the medieval village of Bow. After the churchyard was closed to burials, it was laid out as a public garden by the MPGA.

History

The church of St Mary, Stratford Bow dates from the 14th century, originally built as a chapel of ease to Stepney Parish Church. The churchyard was expanded and laid out in 1825 when adjoining buildings were removed.
