Moortown is a part of Brighstone on the west side of the Isle of Wight. The area is known as the Back of the Wight.[1] Previously, the only form of public transport to pass through the village is infrequent Wightbus service 36, connecting the village with Newport and Brighstone.[2] However, this service was discontinued by the Council in September 2011.
