St Agnes Church, Freshwater
(4.8/5 based on 25+ reviews on the web)
St. Agnes' Church, Freshwater is a parish church in the Church of England located in Freshwater, Isle of Wight.HistoryThe church dates from 1908 and is by the architect Isaac Jones.Tennyson's son, Hallam donated land for a new church in Freshwater Bay. Hallam's wife Audrey suggested that the church be named for St. Agnes. St. Agnes Church was consecrated 12 August 1908. It is the only thatched church on the Isle of Wight.The stone used to build the Church came from an old and derelict farm house on Hooke Hill, Freshwater, and the date stone 1622 was incorporated into the vestry wall, thus rather misleading those who may think the Church belonged to the 17th century".Parish statusThe church is in a united parish with All Saints' Church, Freshwater.OrganA specification of the organ can be found on the National Pipe Organ Register.

  • Picture postcard cute church - saw by chance when drove past....HAD to stop for a closer look- really cute inside too- each chair has its own little cushion to sit on which has been made by hand. Love...  more »
  • lovely thatched and wood church very photogenic and worth a look inside beware traffic though as no pavement on that side of the road 
  • This charming church boasts to be the only thatched church on the island. There is a wonderful atmosphere inside the simple chancel and nave construction. The stalls have arts and crafts carvings.
