Between 1908 and 1916, John Stabb, an ecclesiologist and photographer who lived in Torquay, published three volumes of Some Old Devon Churches and one of Devon Church Antiquities. A projected second volume of the latter, regarded by Stabb himself as a complement to the former, did not materialize because of his untimely death on August 2nd 1917, aged 52. Collectively, Stabb's four volumes present descriptions of 261 Devon churches and their antiquities.

UPEXE. [Upexe Chapel; dedication unknown.] This is a very similar church to that of Netherexe, consisting of undivided chancel and nave, vestry, and bell turret with one bell at the west end. On the south side of the chancel is a piscina with drain. The octagonal font came from some other church. The church has been restored; some time since it had been desecrated and turned into workmen's cottages. The person who showed me the church told me she remembered seeing the piscina in the staircase of one of the cottages. Considering the history of the building much could not be expected of interest to the antiquary.

The four churches of Stoke Canon, Rewe, Netherexe and Upexe, can easily be visited in one excursion.
