Artist's Description

Taking in the view, from Newtown Quay, at Newtown, Isle of Wight, England. This scene at low water, shows a view from the quay, across the estuary, to Newtown Bay.

In the 13th century, Newtown was a flourishing fishing port and was the most important port on the Isle of Wight. There has been a quay here since medieval times.

The decline of Newtown began in 1377 after a raid by the French. Much later, during a severe storm in November 1954, the sea wall was breached and the surrounding land was flooded. The flood water never receded and the area was gradually taken over by salt marshes, which have now become a nature reserve.
