The parishes of central Exeter

The plan shows the sites of the ancient churches of Exeter, with the boundaries of their parishes as recorded on 19th-century maps. The process of the formation of churches and parishes seems to have its origin in the late Saxon period, although documentary evidence of the existence of most of the parishes begins only at the end of the 12th century.
