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. Heritage Lottery Fund Grants for Places of Worship Development works completed in early 2018 to be followed by repairs to address these issues. Work should be completed in 2019.
