St Michael and All Angels

REF NR: 1804

Due to the generosity of Mrs Nunn-Harvey of Shanklin, who donated the land (which was part of the Briddlesford Estate) and paid for the building of the church and Sunday school it opened for the first time on Wednesday 13th September with a large congregation in attendance.

 

The new church is sited at the four-way junction at Wootton Common (now Whiterails/Briddlesford Road junction). It is constructed of corrugated galvanised iron and will accommodate 250 people. There is an octagon-roofed chancel, with vestry and organ chambers on either side, with arches included in the design.
