County War Memorial

REF NR: 1782

The County War memorial is located in the Chapel of St Nicholas at Carisbrooke Castle. In 1904 St Nicholas Chapel was rebuilt to be a memorial to King Charles I. However in 1919, the decision was made to rework the chapel to become the County War memorial. Finally in 1929 it was finished and re-dedicated as the County War memorial.

"FOUNDED C 1070, REBUILT 1738, DISMANTLED 1856, RECONSTRUCTED 1904" and also "THE CHAPEL OF ST NICHOLAS IN CASTRO REBUILT IN 1904 TO THE MEMORY OF KING CHARLES 1st INCORPORATING 13th CENTURY MASONRY REDECORATED 1929 AS THE ISLAND WAR MEMORIAL."
