A small team of Arts Society Colchester volunteers are currently devising a Children's Discovery Trail for All Saints' Church, Brightlingsea, with the support of the Essex Area Discovery Trails representative.  This church was one of the first to be recorded in the area by the AS Colchester Church Recorders (then Colchester DFAS) over 25 years ago and has a long maritime history.  Among many items of interest it has a unique frieze of memorial tiles around the nave commemorating sailors from Brightlingsea lost at sea. 

The Church is currently engaged in a Development plan including funding for repairs and facilities and is also working on a range of activities for children and adults to fully appreciate the Church's maritime history.
