St Helens Beach - Isle of Wight

St. Helen's Beach and Beach Huts

Looking north along the rather battered esplanade towards the sea mark which is all that remains of St. Helen's church.It is said that Holy stones, which were used to clean the decks of Nelson's ships were obtained from the rubble of this church. Hence the name Holy Stones. Nodes point is in the far distance.
