St Lawrence Old Church, Ventnor

(25+ reviews on the web)
Church
Visit one of the smallest churches in Britain at St Lawrence Old Church. The humble rectangular exterior sits adjacent to a tranquil graveyard, with fir trees towering overhead. Built in the 12th century, the floorplan measured only 7.6 m (25 ft) by 3.4 m (11 ft) until a small chancel was added in the 19th century. Today it seats a maximum of 40 people. Step inside the cozy interior to admire the stoup and font, both of which are around 500 to 600 years old, inspect the 17th-century royal coat of arms (since repainted), and notice the Georgian hat pegs and old pews. Plan your visit to St Lawrence Old Church and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Ventnor itinerary planner.

  • Over the past 30 years we have visited the island around four times and having discovered this gem on our first time to the island we always visit when on the IOW.  more »
  • 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.  more »
