Church of St Paul, St Paul's Square, Birmingham - Birmingham

Classical design by Roger Eykyn of Wolverhampton and built in 1777-9 although the upper part of the Spire and tower was added in 1822-3 by Frances Goodwin. The church sits on the corner of the then Newhall estate and was given by Charles Colmore. 'Bilston Rag' stone with rusticated quoins and Gibbs-style surrounds. The interior is classical. The church is suffering from severe issues from leaking parapet gutters and rain water entry which has damaged the interior plasterwork. The condition of the rainwater goods is also poor; there is shailing stonework and vegetation at high level.
