This month we are just off the south coast on England’s largest island, the Isle of Wight at Tennyson Down.
Tennyson Down is a hill at the west end of the island just south of Totland. It is a grassy, whale-backed ridge of chalk which rises to 482 feet above sea level and is named after the poet Lord Tennyson who lived at nearby Farringford House for nearly 40 years. The poet used to walk on the Down almost every day, saying that the air was worth ‘sixpence a pint’ and looking at the trees in this shot you can maybe understand what he meant.
At the top of the Down at a height of 147m stands a huge granite cross commemorating the life of Tennyson which you can just see in the background.
