Cowes Church, Isle of Wight

Although built to a fairly old-style plan, the church standing by the water’s edge near Cowes Castle is actually an 1832 construction by the architect Benjamin Bramble. It was built with sailors in mind and soon gained Royal patronage from Queen Victoria – whose elaborate home, Osborne House, is not too far away. The church has now become solidly attached to the Royal Yacht Squadron whose headquarters are in the Castle. The gardens offer some excellent views of the Solent.
