The Historic Church of St Peter-on-the-Wall
In the 7 th century AD, Saint Cedd, an Anglo-Saxon monk and bishop from Northumbria, founded a monastery within the old walls of Othona, the original Roman settlement that eventually became Bradwell on Sea. This monastery survives to this day as one of Britain’s oldest churches: St Peter-on- the-Wall.
On the first Saturday of each July, the church is the destination for pilgrims who travel from all corners of the globe to attend an open air service followed by a summer fair with stalls, music and dancing. Other special events are held throughout the year.
