View of Bonchurch on the south coast of the Isle of Wight. Bonchurch is perhaps most well known for its association with St Boniface who it is believed that lived in the area and founded a church here. Bonchurch is situated between Shanklin and Ventnor in an area of natural beauty known as the ‘Undercliff’. The area is protected by the peaks of St. Boniface Down, the Island's highest point and this creates a warm and temperate climate. Bonchurch, like Ventnor, was developed predominantly through the Victorian years for the wealthy gentry, who holidayed in the area, taking in the notably milder climate.
