The (I suppose you could call it an) Obelisk is one of two at the ferry end of Gosport High Street, hence, these are the Ferry Gates. Almost at the other end of the High Street are two more, these are called the Clarence Gate. Their location next to Clarence Road Sid presumably not a coincidence. I am trying to find out who the Clarence is who’s name is so synonymous with Gosport; Clarence Road, Clarence Tavern and the Clarence Victualling Yard, clearly denotes a person of some repute.
Well, there you go – just found it on Wikipedia apparently named after the Duke of Clarence who later became William IV, King of England (1765-1837). Anyhow, the gate posts have clear glass spheres on top of them. I’ve been trying to get a picture of the sun coming through the sphere for some time now. Infortunatly I obviously have not put in the obvious amount of effort you have to put in to get it right, plus I’m not sure how effective this is going to be.
I was supposed to go for a walk today. At around 11, I wasn’t able to go out as we had picked up several little tasks. I’m going to try again tomorrow.
