St. Peter ad Vincula (Coggeshall)

St. Peter ad Vincula is the parish church of the delightful little town of Coggeshall in Essex.

The odd name means "St. Peter in chains", and is shared with the chapel in the Tower of London.

The church dates originally from the early 15th century.

However, in 1940 a bomb destroyed much of the tower, the North aisle and the nave.

The tower was completely rebuilt, along with the other destroyed parts, and the work was completed in 1956.

There are brasses in St. Katherine`s Chapel to three members of the wealthy Paycocke family.

There is also a monument to Mary Honywood. By the time she died in 1620 at the age of 93, she had 367 descendants.
