Quarr Abbey is located in a beautiful setting between the villages of Binstead and Wootton and when you drive between Newport and Ryde you will see the building towering out from between the trees. Constructed of red brick, the Abbey was finished in 1912 and designed by one of the first Monks on the Isle of Wight; 31 year old Dom Paul Bellot.  It is now a Grade I listed building and belongs to the Catholic Order of St Benedict. The Abbey was identified as one of 100 most endangered historic sites in the World and in 2012 the Heritage Lottery Fund awarded the Abbey a £1.9 million match funded grant to maintain and preserve the Abbey and its buildings.
