Legacy

The importance of legacies?

Making a will ensures that your wishes are carried out after you have passed. Unfortunately, if you do not write a will the government will decide how your estate is allocated. This may mean your belongings are not distributed as you intended leaving loved ones and/ or charities that were close to your heart not provided for in the way you had hoped. It is therefore crucial you keep your will as up to date as possible. 

Have you ever thought about donating a legacy to a charity that is close to your heart? Your will could also potentially make a difference to a cause you cared for and assist it in a way you did not feel possible to do during your lifetime. 

Please consider remembering Quarr Abbey in your will and help us to continue to offer a place of spirituality, peace, welcome and hospitality to all our visitors.

Your legacy will help us to preserve the unique spiritual and historic buildings and estate at Quarr Abbey.

Any legacy you are able to make will help to fund urgent repair works and on-going maintenance of the Abbey and its medieval ruins, and secure our presence for future generations.

How can a legacy help Quarr Abbey?

The ruins are Scheduled ancient monument, the Abbey Church and Monastery buildings are Grade 1 listed.

Public areas of the abbey are free for all to enjoy but the cost of the upkeep is significant.

Welcome to the Abbey of Our Lady of Quarr, a monastery on the Isle of Wight, just off the south coast of England. It is home to a small group of Benedictine monks who strive to dedicate their lives to the glory of God, and whose day is characterised by prayer, work and community life.

Quarr Abbey is situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty. Visitors are welcome to attend worship in the Abbey Church. You can visit our gardens, take refreshment in our Tea Shop and find out about the monastery in our Visitor Centre. The Farm Shop offers home grown produce and the Monastery Shop religious articles, books and souvenirs. There is a new exhibition of the work of local artists every week in the gallery.
