Welcome to Wootton Bridge Parish Council
Wootton Bridge is situated on the north coast of the Isle of Wight, midway between Ryde and Newport. It is about 3 1/2 miles from each and within a short distance from the main ferry terminals of Fishbourne [Wightlink] and East Cowes [Red Funnel]. The village is located amidst beautiful countryside, some of which bears Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty or Site of Special Scientific Interest designations.
The lovely Wootton Creek and Millpond provides a natural setting to the village, the Creek being popular with yachtsmen and boaters. The Millpond is home to herons, egrets and kingfishers, with the surrounding countryside having red squirrels, foxes, badgers and dormice.
The village has a mixture of modern and Victorian buildings including the 11th century Parish Church of St. Edmunds, and The Sloop Inn in Mill Square. Also of interest is the Isle of Wight Steam Railway with its Station and connections to Havenstreet. The Butterfly and Fountain World which is part of Medina Garden Centre is situated just outside the village.
For the walkers and ramblers there are many walks both within and around the village, including our own Heritage Trail. Also of interest is Firestone Copse with picnic sites and walks, with views across the Millpond. Quarr Abbey, Osborne House and St. Mildred’s Church, Whippingham are nearby.
