Attended a Celtic-style service at St Peter's chapel, where St Cedd oversaw the creation of this church on his journey to Essex from Lindisfarne.

Its quite a trek to visit this chapel with it being necessary to walk the last half-mile or so. However, when you reach it, and enter the utterly serene interior, everything is worthwhile. Very simple, with just a few benches and a crucifix, but then you begin to think about how this place has been used for Christian worship for... More

First visit ever on Bradwell-On-Sea. I heard and saw photos of my friend of this church. We loved it so much that already have planned another visit. Beautiful. Peaceful. Mist visit

I have never had much time for organised religion( and that's being polite) but I have been here twice now the first visit was one year ago less two days and I have been very moved when in this building, i find this to be a spiritual place it's simplicity is very appealing. It's old originally constructed in AD 654... More

We live a about 6 miles away and often come here for a walk. It's great on a nice sunny day and as well as visiting the church you can also walk along the estuary path in either direction. Great for picnics. Always very quiet and peaceful. though a few more people at the weekend. An unique place to bring... More

Let's face it. This is an old barn that would have fallen down years ago if left to its own devices. There is no reason to visit it. Unless... Unless what? Unless you are one of the 100% of people with part of you that is spiritual. Then this is a place of miracle and awe. A place where you... More

We had long wanted to visit this Saxon chapel founded by St Cedd and treated the walk up and our time in the chapel as a mini pilgrimage. Afterwards we walked a while along the shore, looked out at the bird sanctuary and tried to discern the outline on the Roman fort. We were the only people there during our... More

We had heard of this place, but never visited, so we decided to make our way to Bradwell on Sea. This place of worship is right on the end of the peninsula of land by the Blackwater estuary. It is well signed & the road takes you nearly all the way ending at the car park, from there you walk... More

A small and nondescript chapel but wonderfully tranquil. It's right on the coast and is at the end of a road that you can only walk down but well worth a visit.

We went to visit this church on the Sunday the 31st January, leaving our car in the church car park at the end of the track. We had a lovely time walking on the beach etc... When we returned we discovered the car window had been smashed and my handbag stolen... I would just like to say to the person... More
