Bradwell-on-Sea: Church of S. Peter-at-the-Wall

Bradwell-on-Sea: Church of S. Peter-at-the-Wall

The barn-like church at Bradwell-on-Sea retains for the most part the visible proofs of its Saxon (probably 7th centurv) origin Its rectangular nave is virtually unaltered in form since the days of S. Augustine's consolidation of his Christian kingdom, and though the typical chancel has perished, there are still traces in the east wall of the triple arch that was part of it. This triple chancel arch, separating the nave from its eastern part, is traceable also at the ruined S. Pancras Church at Canterbury and at Brixworth in Northamptonshire.
