Prepared by Michael Steer

St Petrock's Church has been described as "among the most confusing of any church ... in England". It might be the oldest church in Exeter, possibly founded by St Petrock, the 6th century Cornish saint. More conservative sources date its founding to the 11th-century. It was one of 29 churches that William the Conqueror directed the City Provost to pay one silver penny out of the public taxes. In 1191, the simple chancel, nave and perhaps a bell tower was formally named St Petrock's by Bishop Marshall.
