Godshill is a village and civil parish on the Isle of Wight with a population of 1,465 according to the 2001 census, reducing slightly to 1,459 at the 2011 Census. It is located between Newport and Ventnor in the southeast of the Island.
Godshill Park House dates from about 1760 and was built as a home farm to serve the Appuldurcombe Estate. In around 1860 the house was extended, adding the Regency front and became a private residence. It was used in the Second World War as an army hospital.
Godshill has pubs called the "Griffin"- featuring a large griffin-shaped maze and children's playground, and "The Taverners".
Godshill model village
Since 1952 Godshill has been the home of a model village 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.
