The garden of this historic church was originally planned by the Metropolitan Parks and Gardens Association in 1895. St Mary atte Bow has been situated 'in the King's Highway' since the early 14th century, and now sits at the edge of the Bow flyover.

At the rear of the church, you have the impression of a country churchyard, and then you find the unexpected 'Edgelands' beyond the railings. This area, planted with trees and roses, rises up and gently dovetails into the flyover itself.

A small project growing fresh produce for the weekly food bank at the church began expansion in 2016.
