St Paul's Church, Bedford
St Paul's stands at the very heart of the County Town of Bedford and serves both as a Parish Church and as the Civic and County Church of Bedfordshire

The present church was started in the first part of the 13th century. The basic plan of the church was for a Chancel, Nave and South Aisle. With numerous alterations little remains visible from this period apart from the South porch. This is early English in style. LinkExternal link
