Incredibly, in the 177 years of St Paul's history we have only had 12 vicars. For over a hundred years portraits were added to the Vestry as successive vicars moved on from their post. After repainting the walls many years ago the portraits weren't rehung, but they are being returned to their rightful place along with some beautiful paintings of the original St Paul's. Watch this space!
