Visit West Mersea and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:
West Mersea, East Sussex, is a small town on Mersea Island. It was a settlement in Roman times and when the burial mound, a mile or so to the North East of the church, was excavated, the remains of a cremated body were found in a tiled burial chamber of the 15th century. Now there are caravans and a large summer holiday population, but still the village retains much of its old charm. Weather-boarded and Georgian brick cottages tell of its earlier days as a small fishing, oyster and sailing centre.
SS. Peter and Paul's is in the old village and dates from Norman times. The tower has 14th century additions and the nave was raised in the 19th century. The font is 13th century Purbeck marble and there is a sculptured lunette by, or in the style of, della Robbia.
