A walk back in time

Interesting building. Best explored from the outside where you can see the changes to the architecture. Lovely views of the Blackwater

In the middle of practically nowhere this plain simple and ancient chapel is a welcome if temporary refuge from the bustle of modern life. This is Christianity at its most basic. A refreshing change from the usual nonsense.

Great to come and see. All free (even parking ... unusual, I know). A lot of good birdwatching. And fairly clean beaches.

St Peters is a truly wonderful place simply consider the history of the building and its presence on Dengie. We have yet to "do" a service here but our spirits are lifted each time we visit.

We went on a very hot day in September and the silence was deafening. Rather isolated and nice walk from carpark to simple chapel by the seaside. Absolutely no facilities. Of course the Romans were here first as chapel built from stolen stone by later Christian missionaries. You can go in the very simple chapel which still has services and... More

It doesn't change here. Been coming for years. Yes the church is historic, but come at high tide and do the circular walk (about 6 miles) around the sea wall via power station. Lovely sandy beaches for swimming, almost deserted. Only downside is no toilets nearby, but small price to pay for feeling like you are in a different world,... More

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
