Church of St Thomas, St Thomas's Square, Newport - Isle of Wight (UA)

Large town church standing in central square. It was rebuilt on the site of an earlier church in 1854-6 by the architect SW Dawkes. The walls are mainly local and re-used stone rubble with Caen stone dressings and Welsh slate roofs. Previous Historic England/National Lottery Heritage Fund grant-aided repairs to the stonework, windows and roofs to the lady chapel, north aisle, upper tower stonework, chancel, vestry and south chapel. However further phases of repair are necessary before the church can be removed from the Heritage at Risk Register
