117/366 Beamister Lane

OK, so apart from the Vision Express shop, and the electric lighting (could it be gas?) I wonder how close this street is to the way it looked in the 1800’s? I have mentioned Beamister Lane in previous posts. As a man, in the 1800’s walking down this lane was to put your way of life in danger. You were as likely to receive a bump on the head, and wake up on board ship, somewhere in the English Channel. Obviously, life on board ship wouldn’t be very nice. Apparently, you could get out of by having a “Not eligible for press ganging” letter. I don’t know if that’s true. Perhaps a bit of research might sort that out.

What I would quite like to have a go at is getting some people together, 5 or 6, a couple dressed in normal 18th century clothing, the rest in naval uniforms of the time. Then I’d like to film a couple of scenes one where a chap gets bopped over the head. The other has an exemption letter. How is that done?

Why wouled I want to do that? Two reasons; I’m a member of the Gosport Society. They are involved in all aspects of the town, it’s history and they are involved in the Heritage Action Zones. I think something like this, filmed properly would be a nice to have on the website – one of several ideas I’d like to suggest to the society. The second reason is for my vlog. I’d love to start one of those. Perhaps I might one day, who knows?

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.
