John Nash's East Cowes Castle

This wall is a remnant of East Cowes Castle
built in 1798 by renowned architect
John Nash (1752-1835)
who also designed the Brighton Pavilion,
Buckingham Palace, Regent's Park
and St James' Park in London for George IV,
as well as Northwood House in Cowes.
He is buried nearby in St James' Churchyard
next to the tower, which is the only unaltered
part of the original church, which he designed.
Demolition of the castle began in 1955
and the land was sold for development

Erected by the Friends of East Cowes with funding
from the Big Lottery
