Old Church of St Mary, Stoke Newington Church Street, Stoke Newington N16 - Hackney

The old parish church of St Mary dates from 1563. It was restored in 1827-29 by Charles Barry who raised the nave roof on a clerestory, added the spire, and the outer north aisle which was lost in WWII and not rebuilt; the exposed soft brick of the north wall is now weathering badly. In 2017 the south aisle roof was repaired with a grant from the Listed Places of Worship Roof Repair Fund. Further repairs are needed internally and externally, in particular to deal with floor repairs, structural movement at the west end of the north aisle and dampness in the west end of the south aisle.
