Church of St Saviour's on the Cliff, Queen's Road, Shanklin - Isle of Wight (UA)

Victorian church by Thomas Hellyer in the Early English style. Built of soft local limestone with tiled roof. The principal problem is the condition of the stonework which is spalled badly all over. The church is in a coastal location. The windows at the west end are very fragile and are protected with Perspex to prevent them from being blown out. Some repairs to the vestry and windows have been carried out but more repairs required.
