498 Titchfield Abbey – Not Today

No, this isn’t the Abbey. We had every intention of going there today, just to get out and have a look around the derelict abbey. At about the time we were ready to go, it was raining. Deciding that it was a bit of a fair weather thing to do, we decided to put it off, so I went for a short walk a while later, when the rain had eased up.

A lot of the time, depending on where I go, I will walk past this place, the Guardroom for St George Barracks. This is in front on the remnants of the railway track that went from Gosport Railway Station to the pier in Clarence Yard for Queen Victoria to go across to Osborne House. It’s possible to look through the tunnel but you can’t go through the tunnel unfortunately. I think there is a project in place to get that part of the walls opened up as a footpath which would be really good.

I am thinking about a walk out to the Alver Hotel, just off the water front at Stokes Bay. I was very surprised to learn of the role this area had in the establishment of the Royal Air Force. Grange Airfield was one of the first, and had a significant role the training side of the RAF – but that is the subject of a future post.

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.
