Remains of Old Quarr Abbey, Fishbourne Park Road, Binstead, Fishbourne / Ryde - Isle of Wight (UA)

Cistercian foundation of 1131. The upstanding remains are in an advanced state of decline due to longstanding lack of regular maintenance and vegetation growth. The National Lottery Heritage Fund grant aided repairs to the barn, some structures and walling as part of a wider project. Further repairs are necessary to remove the remains from the Heritage at Risk Register. Historic England grant-aided an update of the condition survey and temporary propping of the leaning east precinct wall which was in danger of collapse.
