More photographs of Reculver

While I was in Kent I posted a photograph of Reculver taken from most of the way along the coast to Herne Bay.

Here are some photographs from closer to the ruined church. There is something about the site that makes you keep snapping.

There was once a Roman fort here. Later churches were built within its footprint. The current ruin was demolished at the start of the 19th century. In its pomp, with caps on both its towers, it must have resembled Southwell Minster.

Incidentally, the empty cliffs in the photo in my first Reculver post were occupied by a caravan site in the 1950s, as a British Pathe film shows.
