View of the road and an inn at Freshwater in the Isle of Wight. Freshwater is situated on the southern coast of the western tip of the island. In 1799 the only house here was owned by the artist George Morland, but it grew quickly and became the main town for those living or visiting the west of the Isle of Wight. Alfred Lord Tennyson lived in Freshwater and it is thought that he wrote much of his work here.
