Church of St Paul's, Regent Street, Shanklin - Isle of Wight (UA)

Town centre church designed by CL Luck 1875-90, with west porch added 1911. Built of local greensand stone with tiles roofs and slender tower with timber framed top storey and shingled roof. At risk due to timber decay to top of tower, decaying stonework, bulging window glazing, and slipped and missing shingles. Phase one repairs to the main roofs, rainwater goods and high level stonework were successfully completed in 2016 with the help of a grant from Historic England/Heritage Lottery Fund. Further phases of repair are required.
