St Mary-le-Bow is an historic church rebuilt after the Great Fire of 1666 by Sir Christopher Wren in the City of London on the main east–west thoroughfare, Cheapside. According to tradition a true Cockney must be born within earshot of the sound of Bow Bells .
The sound of the bells of St Mary's is prominent in the story of Dick Whittington and His Cat where the bells are credited with having persuaded him to turn back from Highgate and remain in London to become Lord Mayor.
