Set in a tranquil area of the best kept village on the Island is this sweet old church, inside walkers will be pleased to find a tray of refreshments available for those who need it. Well worth a visit

Lovely and peaceful location on the way down to Monks Bay at Ventnor. Very old. Decorated for Christmas. Looked as it carols had been held there over the Christmas period which must have been lovely.
