Aslar-faced outside and Gothic throughout [ "The City of London Churches" Betjeman,J Andover, Pikin, 1967 ISBN 0853721122] , St Mary Aldermary in Bow Lane was greatly damaged in London's Great Fire of 1666 ["The Visitors Guide to the City of London Churches" Tucker,T: London, Friends of the City Churches, 2006 ISBN 0955394503] . While parts of its foundation, walls and tower survived, it was mostly rebuilt by Sir Christopher Wren in a Gothic style ["The Old Churches of London" Cobb,G: London, Batsford, 1942] . The money to rebuild the church was donated in 1679 by Anne Rogers, niece of the Somerset squire Henry Rogers. The church opened in 1682.

St Mary Aldermary is an Anglican church initially built by Sir Christopher Wren or his office, which was damaged in the Second World War. According to Pevsner, it is "the chief surviving monument of the 17th century Gothic revival in the City and -- with Warwick -- the most important late 17th century Gothic church in England." [ "London:the City Churches” Pevsner,N/Bradley,S New Haven, Yale, 1998 ISBN 0300096550] As of April, 2005, the priest in charge of the church was Father John Mothersole.

The church has been repaired and restored many times over the years. The latest interior restoration was finished in April 2005, with special attention paid to the plaster ceilings and the memorials on the north wall. A service was held on April 21, 2005 to celebrate the restoration, presided over by Richard Chartres, the Bishop of London.
