Sandown's sister town is largely a pleasant Victorian seaside resort cantered on some attractive cliffs. The Old Village is of rather greater antiquity, and has adorned many a chocolate box. The Chine, reached from the Old Village, is an attractive tree-lined gorge, which leads down to the beach by Fisherman's Cottage, still may be seen remains of PLUTO, the “pipeline under the ocean” through which petrol was supplied to the troops after the Normandy Landings. The well-maintained Rylestone Gardens line one side of the Chine.
