History Of The Bells

St. Paul’s Church was built between 1873 and 1874 to designs by the architect John Cundall of Leaminton.  It was formed from the parish of St. Mary's. The church had 1150 seats, half free, and half rented to pay the Vicar's stipend. Originally it had a small bell in a turret on the north-east corner of the north transept. The worship space was redeveloped in 2015, removing the pews and making the space much more flexible for use by the church and the local community.

When the tower was completed  in 1875, a year after the church opened, a clock and bell was installed. This bell was second hand and is an early example of Warner's work after restarting bell founding in 1850. Two Taylor trebles were added in 1899. The tenor bell was originally hung for ringing. The clock strikes on bells 1 & 3 and all can be chimed from an Ellacombe chiming apparatus
