Memories of Calbourne

Washing The Sheep

My grandfather Jim Long, including my dad Les and brothers, plus helpers, walked the sheep from Westover Farm to Winkle Street to wash the sheep every year. It was a big event in the village - all the villagers and children. It was usual for one of the kids to fall in.

About this photo

The pretty village of Calbourne lies among the downlands of the Isle of Wight. Its lovely Early English church boasts many fine monuments and is among the oldest on the Island. The long line of cottages in Winkle Street overlooks a delightful babbling brook.
