Bembridge

Bembridge is a small coastal village which is situated on the Eastern tip of the Island.  During the turn of the 18th Century Bembridge Harbour was used by Lord Nelson to berth some of his battleships and to this day is still in use by the marine industry and supports a variety of private yachts and unusual houseboats.

Bembridge also boasts the islands only working Windmill.  The Windmill was built during the 1700's and was in full use until 1913 when it became a store.  Later the Home Guard adopted it as their headquarters during World War 2.  The National Trust eventually purchased the Windmill and  have taken great care to fully restore it to its original condition.
