National Trust 4th Best walk in the UK

Saturday 17th October 2015

A quiet backwater with a busy Medieval past, now bursting with wildlife This is the only National Nature Reserve on the Isle of Wight. It is a beautiful retreat that has something to offer walkers, wildlife enthusiasts and historians or just those in search of peace and tranquility. You can wander past flower-rich hay meadows, through ancient woodlands with rare butterflies and red squirrels, and look out over salt marsh and the clear waters of the harbour, bobbing with sailing boats in the summer and alive with birds in the spring and winter. Newtown Harbour was saved in the 1960s from the threat of a nuclear power station being built near the harbour entrance. The efforts of local people conducting wildlife surveys proved to the authorities how special the place is. The landscape has remained little changed for decades and the pattern of fields reflects Newtown's Medieval origins. The Old Town Hall has more information about the history of Newtown. Maps of the walk are available from Hotel Reception.
