On a short trip to Essex this was the highlight. Probably founded by St Cedd himself, this surprisingly imposing structure stands on the ruins of a Roman fort, probably Othona, with farmland around, approachable only on foot (a short walk). The Blackwater estuary forms a back drop. Unfortunately it had just been closed for repairs when we came, but should... More

Had to drag the wife and kids here after leaving the Waterside caravan site, but so glad I did. No religious interest atll for me, just the history. Follow the green signs from the main road and keep on to until the road ends by a farm and straight into the gravel car park. A nice flat walk up to... More

A charming but very significant ancient religious building over 1300 years old. Good car park with reasonable path to site. A very tranquil and pleasant place to visit especially on a beautiful sunny July day. It is also good to walk past the chapel and stroll along the beach.

A place for all to visit - very peaceful and full of history - only downside longish walk of about a mile from car park.

Can't describe this place well enough. Spiritual. Peaceful. Makes you contemplate. If you can I suggest a visit during the week when everyone is at work. Weekends sometimes busy with walkers. Very unique part of the UK.

After a gap of probably almost 10 years, decided to take the walk to the Chapel once more. Bit hard to find; you have to go past the Church in Bradwell on Sea. The walk from the small parking area took less time than we remember. Even if you are not "religious", the inside of the Chapel is very moving.... More

A fascinating place to visit. There is a free car park and a half mile walk to navigate along a narrow path, which is quite bumpy for buggies or wheelchairs. The small chapel was built in 654AD. We were able to look inside and it really is a quaint, humbling experience. There is a timetable inside the chapel for Sunday... More
