505 Out for a walk

This is the Alverbank Hotel. This appears as Serial 1 (blue dot) on my Gosport map. I’ve been wanting to walk here for a while now, and managed to get out today. The walk was only about 5 miles but it was very pleasant.

So, why does The Alverbank Hotel warrant the No. 1 spot for blue plaques? Well, here it is;

when I started looking at the history of Gosport, I was very surprised to learn at the involvement the town had in the early days of the RAF. The training system saved a lot of lives during training. Then there was Grange Airfield, which is also known as RAF Gosport and was one of the earliest RAF / RFC stations.

The walk itself, whilst it was very grey and quite blustery was mostly rain free. I walked from the hotel, which is very close to Stokes Bay along the waterfront for a while and then changed course to pick up the old railway track back up in to town and head for home. It really was a good walk.

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.
