CHURCH OF ST PETER AND ST PAUL

DESCRIPTION + /

There is good evidence from a number of wills that the Church of Saint Peter, West Mersea was a minster in the 10th and 11th centuries. The West tower is of the Saxo-Norman period, the nave, chancel, South aisle and North porch being rebuilt in the 14th century. It was again altered in the 16th century. Between 1046 and 1400 the church was the conventual church of West Mersea Priory, which was situated to the East of it. Roman remains are built into the fabric, a readily available source of the material being the substantial Roman complex it is built on.
