Quarr Abbey, West Ryde

British Isles Genealogy | Isle of Wight

Quarr Abbey, W. Ryde.-The distance of the Abbey from Ryde is about three miles. It is a favourite walk from Spencer Road, viā The Lovers' Walk, past Binstead Church, through Quarr Wood. This portion is occupied as a farm, but remains of the old Abbey are scattered about, portions still standing to testify its extent and importance. The walk may be continued through the archway on to Fishbourne. In the wood the daffodil is plentiful, primroses, lungwort, and the blue iris also abound in their season. The Wood has been very extensively quarried for the limestone, with which Winchester Cathedral and many Churches were built. There are pathways through the Wood down to the shore, forming very pleasing vistas through the overhanging trees.
