St Paul's Church, Kexby

St Paul's Church, Kexby
St Paul's Church, Kexby, is along a small drive on the northern side of the A1079, about eighty metres (yards) west of the Old Hall Lane junction. The small village seems to have been hit hard by the Black Death as it was excused from paying over half its tax quota in 1354. A chantry chapel at Kexby was mentioned in 1398. Dedicated as St Mary's Chapel, it may have been suppressed in the sixteenth century and might have stood in Chapel Close, mentioned in 1604.
The early Gothic style church of St Paul was designed by F C Penrose and consecrated in 1852. It consists of chancel, nave, north-west bell turret with spire, and west door with canopy. There is one bell. A district chapelry was formed out of Catton parish in 1853. The church is now closed and going through the process of redundancy. Kexby Primitive Methodist Chapel was mentioned in the village in 1840 and 1851, but a cottage was used in 1865 and 1877. [The History Files]
