Surely you mean Paignton North fringed with Exeter.

According to the SRS Signal Box Register Volume 1: Great Western, both boxes fringed with Exeter Panel but at different periods:

It shows that Paignton North signal box closed on 26th March 1988
Paignton South signal box was fitted with an IFS panel on 26th March 1988, so presumably controlled the North crossing via CCTV
Paignton South signal box itself closed on August 1989, presumably on or about 5th August 1989 because that is the date when a new mini panel was opened in the station buildings.

I stand corrected.
