The Church of St Michael the Archangel, Shalfleet, Isle of Wight, England. This medieval, Grade I listed church, in the tiny village of Shalfleet was built almost like a fortress. The walls are 5 feet thick and the sturdy looking tower with battlements, had a secret room only accessible from a door on the roof. The tower, dating from 1070, was a place of refuge for the residents, during attacks by the French. Unusually, a 3 pound gun was kept in the tower. Much later, the gun and the church bells were sold to fund the addition of a steeple in circa 1800, but the steeple had to be removed in 1912 after becoming unsafe. The church currently has two bells.
