339/366 Hidden History

All this foliage is hiding an important piece of Gosport’s history, actually two pieces of history. The first and the oldest is the undergrowth is hiding part of the Towns Ramparts. They were built in the 1600’s around the old town. There’s still quite a bit of it left and they are being refurbished, but not this bit – but what would you do? Would you clear away the trees and the undergrowth and disturb all the wildlife that must be there?

Underneath all that undergrowth and underneath the ramparts, in fact through the ramparts is a tunnel. It was built after 1843 at the built at the behest of Prince Albert and was used until Queen Victorias death in 1901.

The tunnel is still there, but is gated off at both ends. I would love to be able to walk through and touch the walls to feel the history. The picture makes it look very over grown, it is much more easily approached during the winter months.

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.
