St Mary, Brownsea Island, Dorset - 9th October 2006

St.Mary's church was built in 1854 in the Gothic style and is the only part of the island not owned by the National Trust (although some of the other buildings are leased out).

Inside the church there is a plaque in the family pew to the builder of the church, William Waugh, as well as a memorial plaque to Mrs Bonham Christie (near the font).

The island's association with the scouting movement is celebrated by two flags and various kneelers bearing scouting and guiding badges.
