Exeter: St Paul

"St. Paul's Church, in Paul street, near the Cathedral yard, which is a handsome structure, was rebuilt in the latter part of the 17th century. It contains a fine painted window with a full length figure of St. Paul. It has also several handsome monuments, and an ancient oval font, of black marble, The tower has a clock and one bell. The rectory, valued in K.B. at £8. 2s. 6d., and in 1831 at £174, is in the gift of the Dean and Chapter, and incumbency of the Rev. R.B. Kinsman, M.A., who is also rural dean."
