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 then lost in WWII; 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 work is needed to repair floors, deal with dampness, and monitor structural movement. In 2020 Historic England awarded a Covid-19 Emergency Heritage at Risk Response Fund grant for repairs to the tower windows.
