St Nicholas-in-Castro

Carisbrooke Castle, Isle of Wight England UK

Church of England (Anglican)

This chapel was founded in 1070 by William the Conqueror. The present building dates to the 13th century, though it was largely rebuilt in 1738. Charles I was imprisoned here for fourteen months before his execution. In 1904 for the 250th anniversary of his death, the chapel was restored from near ruin to Countess Isabella's original design and re-consecrated as a national memorial to the martyred king. It also serves as the Isle of Wight War Memorial.
