View of the village of Carisbrook, in the centre of the Isle of Wight. The parish of Carisbrook was originally known as Boucombe which means pleasant valley. The name Carisbrook came from the Saxon word ‘caer’ which means town, and its situation on a brook. The village stands below the castle of the same name, about one mile from the town of Newport.
