772 – Ooops Gosport (again)

The two doors are No.s 16 & 17 North Cross Street. I’ve just spent a bit of time trying to find out when this was built. I’m guessing, but I’d say the 1960’s or 70’s. I don’t really know though.

The thing is (sorry to say this) but I’m not interested in the building. What I am saying is that at some point, it might have been this one or the preceding building or earlier than that, an archeological dig was done before construction began.

Now, I got excited when I read on a website that evidence was found during the dig of people living in the area during the post-medieval period. I thought that has to be ages ago, so I looked it up. Can you imagine that I was a bit disappointed to find that the post medieval dates are between 1485-1750.

At the late end of the range, Gosport would be probably a bit squalid, but well on it’s way to becoming an important town, having played its role in the civil war.

On the other had, it doesn’t look as though much was happening in 1485. Both Alverstoke & Rowner were quit well established, but Gosport was a merest glint in someone’s shut eye.

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.
