For 45 years the Isle of Wight Society has been presenting Awards for Conservation of Buildings on the Island to congratulate those owners who have made the effort to “do the job properly!” These range from massive restoration projects such as Golden Hill Fort, conservation projects such Whippingham Church, extensions such as Yarmouth Station, to the restoration of Freshwater Village Pound, a beautiful small Island stone wall.

Images in this exhibition present how the character of the Island has been carefully maintained, and this includes new builds, such as the cover building for Brading Roman Villa, or Balfour Court in Cross Street Ryde.

A building must have a use, and so redundant farm buildings have been sensitively restored for new uses. Similarly, redundant churches have been given a new lease of life as accommodation. Chapels at Ryde and Northwood Cemeteries have been excellently restored and now also have research facilities available to the public.

The exhibition shows just some of the excellent work achieved on the Island by owners, architects, builders and craftsmen since the Isle of Wight Society awarded their first plaque to Brigstocke Terrace, Ryde, in 1973.

Gallery opening times: Mon - Sat, 10am - 5pm.
