All the areas of Nettlestone, Seaview, Brading, St Helens, Bembridge, Havenstreet, Haylands and Ashey parishes lie on the North East edge of the Island, which provide enjoyment to visitors throughout Spring, Summer and Autumn. Visitors can also travel on the steam train located at Havenstreet. Visitors can also travel on Island line to Brading.

Brading is a small rural town alongside an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the Isle of Wight.It is proud of its strong community spirit, its hospitality to visitors to its historic sites and buildings, pleasant downland countryside and seaward wildlife sanctuary. Brading Roman Villa is one of the finest Romano-British archaeological sites in the UK.

Bembridge is a village and located on the easternmost point of the Isle of Wight. Bembridge is home to many of the Islands wealthiest residents.Bembridge sits at the extreme eastern point of the Isle of Wight. Prior to land reclamation the area of Bembridge and Yaverland was almost an island unto itself, separated from the remainder of the Isle of Wight by Brading

The population of Seaview and Nettlstone Villages are mostly in the ‘retired’ age group and an important feature is that the proportion of second homes is one of the highest on the Island. Many of the second homes belong to the sailing community and are let throughout the summer months. This means that during the winter the streets become deserted but with a great increase during July and August especially during Regatta week

This corner of the island has micro climate which encourages shrubs to bloom nearly all year round. Wildlife includes red squirrel colonies, badgers, foxes and a wide variety of sea birds and waders, including herons, egrets and grebes to name a few. These birds can be viewed at the Hersey Nature Reserve on the Duver

The history of the Parish of Havenstreet and Ashey available is the book "God’s Own Acre," by Keith Newbery and Angela Snow. As well as the general history of the Parish, particular topics covered include local characters, the school, sport, wartime, the White Hart Inn, local farming, the steam railway, and Ashey and the races.
