Isle of Wight - Undercliff
Isle of Wight, England is a tract of semi-rural land, around 5 miles
long by 0.25–0.5 miles wide, skirting the southern coast of the
island from Niton to Bonchurch. Named after its position below the
escarpmentthat backs this coastal section, its undulating terrain
comprises a mix of rough pasture, secondary woodland, parkland,
grounds of large isolated houses, and suburban development. Its
sheltered south-facing location gives rise to a microclimate
considerably warmer than elsewhere on the island. Although
inhabited, the Undercliff is an area prone to landslips and
subsidence, with accompanying loss of property over time.
Settlements along the Undercliff, from west to east, are: lower
Niton (also called Niton Undercliff), Puckaster, St Lawrence,
Steephill, the town of Ventnor, and Bonchurch.
