573 – Actually, it’s quite nice

There is no denying, that there is at least one part of Gosport that has a bad reputation that has been there for many years. The reputation remains even though the appearance of that part of town has mostly changed beyond all recognition. Just occasionally, somebody will let side down and do something stupid which stirs a backlash on social media, or a one-off report in a local paper (I’ll comment on local papers later). There is also no denying that actually there are some really nice parts to the town, interesting places to visit and as I have said on several occasions absolutely stuffed with history.

We have three rather good museums, two art galleries at least two excellent libraries and the reference section of the main library – THe Discovery Centre is very well populated with material, particularly on the military history that has played such an important part of this time pretty much since Gosport became a place (around the 1600’s arguably, 942 if you talk about Rowner & Alverstoke).

To walk the town is to walk the history of the area. If you are in the least bit interested in history, it can’t help but draw you in.

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.
