My partner and me have just returned home from a wonderful weeks holiday on the IOW, The Needles Battery was one of the stops.
The Old Battery is quite nice to visit, though - a fairly small site but very untouched and with good interpretive material, plus the closest view of the Needles you'll get without going on a boat trip.
The Old Battery is run by the National Trust so if you are a member, entrance is free. The walk is about half a mile from the Needles Pleasure Park car park (entrance fee £4) and follows the cliff edge mostly rising towards the Old Battery, on a windy day can be quite treacherous and not one for the faint hearted.
