484 Gosport History

Gosport Station was opened in 1841, and the last train before closure left in 1969. During the illustrious period of it’s life Queen Victoria’s husband Prince Albert saw an extension of the line from the station punching a hole through the defensive ramparts of the town, to take the track across to Clarence Yard, for the queen to be carried to the waterfront for her trip over to Clarence House on the Isle of Wight. In 1901 the station saw Queen Victoria’s body being conveyed back to London.

Although the historic aspects are very interesting, and the building is a Grade II Listed structure, that hasn’t stopped it from being converted into a combination of offices and flats. Quite tastefully done.

I wrote on facebook that I had been having difficulty motivating myself to get up in the morning, especially now that I’ve finished the Walk1000 for this year, I was going to try to reach 1500 miles, but I’ve blown it I’ve lost out on a few miles over the last couple of weeks and I am currently at roughly 1380, I can’t think that I’m going to do 120 between now and the end of the month. But I have found that by giving myself a small goal, I can motivate myself to get up. This morning, I wanted to take a picture of the railway station. Actually, tomorrow, I might see if, in the morning I can get a picture through the tunnel in the ramparts. I haven’t been there at night before.

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.
