The original parish church of Clapham was St Mary's Church which dated from the 12th century. St Mary's was renamed Trinity Church after the Reformation. It was demolished at the end of the 18th Century after a new Holy Trinity Church was built on Clapham Common.
St Paul's Church was built at the beginning of the 19th century on the site of the former St Mary's/Holy Trinity Church. The building was completed in 1815. The architect was either C. Edmonds or Christopher Edwards. The church was built from stock brick and is in the classical style. In 1875, the church was extended at the east end by Sir Arthur Blomfield.
