London Attractions : London Sightseeing
St Mary Le Bow was destroyed in the Great Fire of London in 1666 before being rebuilt by Sir Christopher Wren. The definition of a cockney is someone born within earshot of the Bow Bells, which refers to the bells of this church.
The original church on the site was torn down by a tornado in 1091, meaning that the site has almost 1000 years of historic significance.
