The original church was taken down in 1816, when the building of the present structure was started. It was considerably enlarged in 1839. It is in the Roman style, with a Doric portico, and a round tower, containing six bells. It has a large graveyard; its large parish includes the City and County Prisons, the Cavalry Barracks, Northernhay, the Railway Station, the manor of Duryards, and many houses. It is said to have been anciently a chapelry to Heavitree, and to have had a chapel near the river, dedicated to St. Clement.
