St Peter and St Paul, St Osyth, Essex

The church of St Peter and St Paul in St Osyth, Essex was first built in the 12th century but has been much modified since then in the 13th and 16th centuries. It is unusually wide and as well as interesting brick columns in the nave has a sheepfold communion rail in the chancel. 

There is not much graffiti visible in the church. However there are several merely of the three men’s morris design on the stone arch at the end of the north aisle.

The only other graffiti to be found in the church are on the alabaster monuments to Lords Thomas and John Darcy and their wives in the chancel.
