Medieval Lighthouse

This 11 metre high slender tower made up of a square shaft and an 8-sided pyramidical roof stands on one of the highest parts of the Isle of Wight overlooking the English Channel and the famous chalk cliff downs leading to The Needles.

Affectionately known as “The Pepperpot”, but formally called St Catherine’s Oratory, this shell of a medieval lighthouse is reached by a fairly steep uphill walk over rough ground from a car park near Blackgang Chine. Therefore its suitability for mobility impaired visitors is questionable, especially during or soon after inclement weather.
