St Peter’s Chapel

The Chapel of St Peter-On-The-Wall in Bradwell-on-Sea is one of the oldest intact Christian churches in England. It is the 19th oldest building in the country, dating back to around AD 660-662.

Today it is located next to Christian commune, the Othona community. Structurally, the nave remains, with foundations of an apse and flanking chapels. Until 1920 the chapel was used as a barn, but it was then restored and reconsecrated. It is now Grade I listed. It is largely composed of re-used Roman stone, and the remaining building is distinctive for the height of its walls.

Radical Essex is a project re-examining the county in relation to radicalism in thought, lifestyle, politics and architecture. A programme of events will take place across Essex throughout 2016 and 2017, shedding light on the vibrant, pioneering thinking of the late 19th and 20th centuries. The project will celebrate the crucial role Essex has played in the history of British Modernism and its utopian ideologies under the themes ‘The Modernist County’ and ‘Arcadia for All’.

The Radical Essex site is designed by Fraser Muggeridge studio and Alex Rich, developed by Twelve.

Radical Essex is led by Focal Point Gallery in collaboration with Visit Essex and Firstsite. Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England it forms part of the country wide Cultural Destinations programme, a partnership with VisitEngland, supporting arts organisations to work with the tourism sector to deliver projects that maximise the impact culture has on local economies.
