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 Heritage Lottery 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 condition survey update and preparation of schedule of works is in progress.
