103/365 The Blue Plaques

I thought I would do a series on the Gosport Plaques. I thought that I would do a piece on each plaque, but I realised with Henry Cort, I would just be regurgitating what I’d read on the Wikipedia page. Not quite plagiarism, but not far from it.

I will be able to talk a bit more about some of the blue plaques because there are quite a few in the town. Some are a couple of miles away from Henry Court’s. But I am aware of at least four, possibly 5 within only a few hundred yards of this one.

I don’t intend to write about a plaque a day – you (my real and imagined readers) would get bored with that. But I don’t think one a week for the next few weeks is unreasonable.

Anyhow, here’s a link to the Wikipedia page for Henry Cort;

There you can read about the “puddling” process that he developed for increasing the refinement of wrought iron.

The plaque is on a wall in a car park near the ferry end of town. I’m not sure exactly where his foundry was, I assume that it wasn’t far away. If you wanted to visit the plaque, use What 3 words reference study.trim.bound to get you very close to it.

If you haven’t heard of what 3 words, it’s a seriously brilliant mapping system. If you haven’t heard of it before, here’s another link;

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
