Godshill Church, circa 1910

Godshill is a village and civil parish[1] on the Isle of Wight with a population of approximately 2,800 (1998). It is located between Newport and Ventnor in the southeast of the island.

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.

Public transport is provided by Southern Vectis bus routes 2 and 3, which run between Newport, Ryde, Sandown, Shanklin and Ventnor. Route 3 runs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.[2][3]

[edit] Attractions

Since 1952 Godshill has been the home of a model village[1] of itself and Shanklin's old village at a scale of 1:10. It is so detailed and on such a large scale that it contains a scale model of the model village. Within that second model there is a third, even smaller model of the village.
