St Mary and St Radegund Church, Whitwell, Niton and Whitwell - Isle of Wight (UA)

Unusual village church formed from two separate medieval chapels built side by side and largely re-built in the C15/16. Mostly built from the local Greensand stone with tiled roofs. At risk mainly due to stone decay and water penetration from defective pointing and rainwater disposal. National Lottery Heritage Fund Grants for Places of Worship works to address these issues should be completed in 2019.
