View of Niton in the Isle of Wight. Niton is situated in a picturesque area of the Isle of Wight known as Undercliff. W. H. Davenport Adams describes the area in his book ‘The Isle of Wight; Its History, Topography and Antiquities’, published in 1862; “The parish of Niton is bounded on the north and east by that of Whitwell, west by Chale, and south by the waters of the channel. In its limits are included the wildest and rudest portion of the Undercliff, the dangerous coast from Old Park to Rocken end, Niton Down, and many a footprint of the Celt and the ancient Roman”.
