Shanklin Old Village

British Isles Genealogy | Isle of Wight

Shanklin Old Village.-One of the most charming old-world pictures, which still retains its rustic simplicity. Multitudes of visitors from all parts of the world yearly visit this relic of Old Shanklin. Pretty thatched cottages can be seen in many parts of the Island, but nowhere is there such a combination, there being three different styles of roof in thatch, the setting in a background of trees completing the illusion of the country. In the angle where the figures stand is the rustic fountain on which hangs the shield with the verse written by the poet Longfellow when staying at Hollier's Hotel, Shanklin, in 1869.
"O traveller, stay thy weary feet,
Drink of this fountain cool and sweet,
It flows for rich and poor the same:
Then go thy way, remembering still
The wayside well beneath the hill,
The cup of water in His name."
