564 – A Sunday walk

It’s been a sunny Sunday. Even with a little bit of a bite to any breeze the might be about. Too nice a day to stay indoors. For the last few days I had a route in mind that I wanted to follow. I didn’t quite make it fully, having to cut it back by about a mile, I still managed just over 4 1/2 miles. If I had completed the full walk, I think it would have been nearer 5.5 miles, possibly six, but I’m happy with what I did. The route was;

  • After leaving home;
  • West on Stokes Road, up to Gosport Memorial Hospital
  • Along Anns Hill (where I took the head picture), pausing and the old part of Anns Hill Cemetary
  • Briefly along Brockhurst Road to Avery Lane.
  • Along Avery Lane (See Note 1)
  • Along San Diego Road in to Mill Lane
  • Back on to Forton Road
  • Right on to Clarence Road
  • Briefly on to the High Street, right past Morrisons
  • Back on Stokes Road, then home.

(Note 1): At this point in my walk I had to make a decision, turn left to head towards Priddy’s Hard & the explosion museum, or the shorter route back towards home. I needed to be in a position to go home in short order should the need arise, meaning that I would cut the walk short. Whilst I had to cut the walk short , I wanted to exceed my daily Walk1000 requirement, taking in to consideration that yesterday I only managed 2.3 instead of 2.79 miles, meaning I had to do at least 3.2 miles. Today’s total of 5.6 miles easily meets that (admittedly, that includes a quick trip to Tesco Express).

I wanted to see what old buildings I could find on my walk. An obvious one is the Gosport Memorial Hospital, here’s a picture that places the construction of the present hospital building (I’m not sure if there was a building before this one, a quick search didn’t reveal one).

I saw another building that had a plaque with a very faded date on Anns Hill, which I think also said 1921. Those two were the only ones I spotted.

The header picture was taken looking up the cycle track heading up towards Fareham. This is the route of the railway and is an excellent cycle route, which I use a lot.

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.
