East Mersea: St Edmund

Our Church is a friendly welcoming church which receives visitors from all over the world, as our Visitor's Book can testify.  Situated as we are in a holiday area with four sizable Holiday Parks within walking distance we get a lot of people dropping in and they are always interested in the history of the building, the construction of which spans many centuries.  Our first recorded incumbent was installed in about 1200CE.
