In his book 'The Isle of Wight' James Redding Ware describes the village of Shorwell as "a perfect nest of ruralities...the paradise of shady lanes...In the high noon of summer one has never far to go to find shade in Shorwell. It is a village park...Our artist has chosen for illustration one of these Shorwell lanes - its mossy banks thick with ferns and flowers, and the branches meeting overhead."
