"Your eyes are now glancing over the beautiful valley of the island - the fruitful valley, wherein nestles Arreton, and where is harvested more than the islanders can consume...The church, which is dedicated to St. George, is an ancient edifice, consisting of a nave and chancel, with a fourth aisle...From Arreton Down may be enjoyed a prospect of wonderful beauty, - hamlets shining among leafy copses, venerable manor-houses and ancient farmsteads, meadows and uplands, streams, groves, and shadowy combes."
