Bow gets its name from a 12th century bridge allegedly built when Matilda, wife of Henry 1, tumbled into the River Lea. The river is little in evidence today, still less the match factory of Bryant and May, which provided employment for over 100 years. The parish church, rebuilt after wartime bombings, still survives on a roundabout; possibly reflecting on how it once viewed the final minutes of two Marian martyrs who paid the ultimate price for their faith.

Useful facts about Bow E3:
Bow is a district in East London, England, in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets. It is a built-up, mostly residential district located 4.6 miles (7.4 km) east of Charing Cross. The name of the area was anciently Stratford, and "Bow" is an abbreviation of the medieval name Stratford-atte-Bow, in which "Bow" refers to a bridge built in the early 12th century. Bow is set to benefit from the leisure facilities planned for the 2012 Olympic Games at Stratford in the east.
The area`s slums have been demolished to make way for a mixture of loft apartments, new terraced houses and student homes. Bow Quarter is an imaginative conversion of an old match factory into 700 dwellings and two new developments, Bow Central and the Heart of Bow. Council towers are being refurbished and original period terraces remain popular.
In 1311 Bow remained an isolated village, often cut off from Stepney church by flood. Permission was given to build a chapel of ease to allow the residents a local place to worship. The land was granted by Edward III, on the King's highway, that beginning a tradition of island church building. In 1719, the parish became independent and St Mary Stratford Bow consecrated. The parish also included the Old Ford area which has also been known as North Bow.
