The weather is hopefully going to be quite good tomorrow, so why not join our Dinosaur Isle team on a walk around Brighstone (2-4pm), to learn more about local Reverend William Fox, who has no less than FOUR species of dinosaurs named after him!

Isle of Wight Council

A new Public Bridleway called S41 has been opened! It runs over the track bed of the old railway line in the Ningwood/ Newbridge area and links the existing Bridleways S16 and S36. However, this runs through a working farm and care must be taken as cattle have to cross the bridleway to access fields and farm vehicles also share the route. Please respect the landowner and the farming community and make sure all gates are securely closed behind you; dogs are kept on leads or at heel; and that dog mess, rubbish and litter is not dropped and disposed of responsibly. Please pay attention to your surroundings and wait for cattle to cross or tractors to pass. We hope everyone enjoys the new route and remembers to be considerate to everyone.
