27th July Victorian Boarding House and Renovation

The Society’s next meeting will feature a talk by Jonathan Collins on the history and renovation of Navarino Villa, a semi-detached house built in 1870, situated on St Boniface Road, Ventnor, next to the Edwardian school. It was built as a boarding house and welcomed many visitors to Ventnor during the Victorian era. Over the years the building suffered from neglect and in 2012 a major renovation was begun. The house has many Victorian features typical of the period, which have been restored. Today Navarino Villa, once again, welcomes visitors from all over the country and abroad.  

The meeting will, as usual, be held at the Masonic Hall in Grove Road, Ventnor, and starts at 7.30 pm.

Entry is free to members, while visitors are very welcome; the entry fee is £2.00
