Isle of Wight - St Lawrence

St Lawrence is a village on the south side of the Isle of Wight, in southern England. It is located to the west of Ventnor and many consider it a part of that town. St Lawrence is situated on the Undercliff, and is subject to regular landslips.
St. Lawrence is much older than Ventnor. One of its churches dates from the 13th century; before the addition of a chancel in 1830, it was only 25 feet long and 11 feet wide, and was considered the smallest church in England. Although there are undoubtedly smaller chapels including the tiny church at Les Vauxbelets on Guernsey, this arguably remains the smallest to be built as a parish church although this role has long since been supplanted by a larger church in the village - see St. Lawrence's Church, St. Lawrence. It also has a 15th-centurybaptismal font - a stoup that is about 500 years old and a series of 18th-century hat pegs. The piscina niche is almost the same age as the church.
The larger church at St. Lawrence dates from the 19th century, but has a 17th-century altar and a chest that dates from 1612.

It was built in 1815 by Lord Yarborough, founder member of the Royal Yacht Squadron in Cowes. Lord Yarborough wanted his brother, Captain Pelham to have a country retreat at his disposal. Captain Pelham, the famous sea captain and his new wife, soon settled into life away from the Navy at Lisle Combe or Captain Pelham's Cottage as it was first named.
