Isle of Wight - Godshil
Godshill is a village and civil parish on the Isle of Wight with
a population of 1,465 according to the 2001 census. It is located
between Newport and Ventnor in the southeast of the Island.
The name 'Godshill' is said to originate from the foundations of the
local church, which dates back to the 14th century, being moved from
the bottom of the hill to its present location on the top of the
hill on three occasions whilst it was being built. This was taken to
be a sign from God that the church should be built on the hill,
hence the name Godshill. The history of the village is tied up with
Appuldurcombe House and The Worsley family featuring as the main
house of the area in the nearby village of Wroxall.
Ford Farm near Godshill was the site of the first ever Isle of Wight
Festival in 1968. It attracted 10,000 people to see acts such as
Jefferson Airplane and the mystical Arthur Brown.
