Video tour of the mid-Saxon chapel of Saint Peter's in Bradwell-on-Sea, Essex
The bleakly beautiful setting of St Peter's Chapel, Bradwell-on-Sea is something you really have to experience in person. In particular, there is something so tantalising about the approach to the edge of the sea along a long, well-trodden path - it is a liminal place. Constructed from the remains of the Othona fort on the southern shore of the Blackwater Estuary in Essex, the current structure was constructed under the orders of the Celtic Rite by St Cedd in 660-662and, according to Bede, was probably originally named, 'Ythanceaster'.
We urge you to go and see for yourself. In the meantime, gain a glimpse by clicking on the video.
