Chapel built in 654 by St Cedd on his arrival in England. It was built from the remains of a nearby Roman fort - part of the 'Forts of the Saxon Shore' defences - and is situated in a romantic location under the large skies and beautiful expanse of the Essex Marshes.
It had become derelict by the 14th century and was used as a lighthouse by the Tudors, and in later years as a barn. In 1920 it was restored as a chapel and is still used in the summer for services.
