Shalfleet Church

The church is well worth a visit by hall-users. A Saxon church once stood on the site; the tower is one of the earliest Norman buildings on the Island, dating from about 1075. A 13th century arcade of Purbeck marble, Elizabethan linenfold panelling, an early 17th century pulpit, an ancient and rare sculpted tympanum and some excellent stained glass are among the internal features. An informative guide book is available, which describes these and other items.

The church is normally unlocked between 9.15am and sunset.
