Reculver Church Towers

Standing in the boundaries of a redundant Roman fort, there has been a church or monastery at Reculver since the 7th century. Much of the original building was built with stone from the ruined fort and, over the decades, it became a local landmark for passing shipping.

Gradually falling into decline, the now St Mary's Church faced completed demolition due financial and coastal erosion elements. Trinity House though intervened saving the towers due to their heritage, leaving what we see today. There are fine coastal walks from Reculver and easy access to the shore.
