Details

This ancient Saxon chapel is the oldest church in England built by St Cedd in 654ad, it is one of the most restful and spiritual buildings in the country, a place to bring you peace and tranquility. The old Saxon quote on the Chapel sign ‘In this place the word is revealed to you’ is certainly true.

The Chapel is situated at one end of the long distant walk ‘St Peters Way’. The Chapel is right on the coast and has stunning views a must for walkers and those keen on photography.

The Chapel is always open to visitors, but sometimes there may be a service on. There is a service every Thursday at 9am and Sunday evenings in July and August at 6:30pm, other services are held throughout the year by various groups.

The area is good for picnics; the car park is about ¼ mile away from the chapel, so a walk along the track is necessary.

Groups can be accommodated for, if booked in advance. We can provide talks at the chapel with refreshments and facilities at St Thomas Church in the village. Accommodation and facilities are also available at the Othona Community near the Chapel.
