Stoneham War Shrine

Introduction

The building consists of three compartments, the central and largest containing an oak altar and crucifix, with the two smaller compartments on either side being intended for prayer and enclosed with oak doors. Plaques containing the names of those who died are fixed within the central compartment. The shrine was enclosed with iron railings, with a beech hedge planted on three sides. The shrines are reputedly the last two buildings made of the stone from the Binstead quarries on the Isle of Wight.
