Extract from E.W. Cooke’s Diary – 9th July 1831
Saturday “Had breakfast at the Inn, made sketches all about the Chine, had dinner at the Inn. Bathed in the morning and walked along the beach to Luccombe Chine (1 mile) and made sketches. Returned to Shanklin, got fishermen to carry luggage and we walked along the beach to Bonchurch (lovely place) and on to Ventnor. Had tea at the Crab and Lobster and went down to the cove and sketched. Slept at the Crab.”

Estimate: £300-£500
