Yaverland Battery, Isle of Wight is a battery on the Isle of Wight, United Kingdom. It was constructed between 1861 and 1864.

Although not much remains at the holiday camp in Yaverland where the battery is situated, the outer casing of the battery is still mostly intact so one can imagine how it looked when it was first built. The outer walls and caponiers remain.

The remains of the Battery are now a Scheduled Ancient Monument.[1]
