St Paul's Church, with its lofty tower is a dominant landmark within the High Street and beyond. It was completed in 1838 and designed in a Romanesque style by Charles Fowler, architect, and unusually sited on a largely north - south axis. It was restored in 1849 after early failure of the roof structure, and recently cleaned and restored which shows to good effect the use of squared-off blocks of chert with Beer stone dressings. Maps, photographs.
