    1. I know, I couldn't quite understand what it was for at first. Very pleased there was a notice board explaining it.

    1. Hi Debbie....we used to live in Hampshire, it's on the mainland but we could see and visit the Isle of Wight easily. We went back recently for a holiday to the Isle of Wight...had a lovely time....here's a link to the Wikipedia info about the island...
