Cooks Castle (from Brannon print)
On the side of St. Martin Down, above Wroxall, facing Appuldurcombe House stood Cook's Castle. Built mid 18th C by Sir Richard Worlsey as a folly, with fake towers etc. reputedly to enhance the view from Appuldurcombe House.

Today the only evidence is a stone memorial which reads 'SITE OF COOK'S CASTLE' by the side of footpath V30 above Wroxall.
