St Mary's Church, Carisbrooke by Rod Johnson

St Mary's Church, Carisbrooke

The Parish and Priory Church of St Mary The Virgin, at Carisbrooke, Isle of Wight. This large medieval church, which stands high above Carisbrooke High Street, was established in c1150, first as a Benedictine priory. The priory was dissolved in 1415 and later during the 15th century a tower was added. The church was restored in 1907, it has 2 halls and a bell tower, which is very unusual because it rises in 5 stages and has a turret at on corner and pinnacles at the other corners, with battlements in between. The tower had 8 bells installed in 1921 and a further 2 bells were added in 2002.
