Atherfield  Hampshire


In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Atherfield like this:

ATHERFIELD, a tything in Shorwell parish, Isle of Wight; on the S coast, 6½ miles SSW of Newport. Atherfield rocks here are subject to landslips; and then, after being washed by the waves, show very strikingly the juxtaposition of the lowermost of the greensand deposits with the uppermost of the Wealden.
