831 – a bit of history

Here’s another post that I’ve left too late in the evening to do a good post . I usually get stuck at this time of day and my brain goes blank. Today though, I at least had a partial idea.

I’d reached the point in the Hampshire history book where Gosport is “born” Even to the civil war, where Portsmouth no less was bombarded from Gosport’s Waterside – not one mention, no acknowledgement.

Gosport may not in its own right be very important, but in it’s role with the military, it is has had a vital role. I was very surprised that it bore no mention.

I’m just over halfway through the book. We still have things like Palmerston’s Follies. The book is fascinating in that it only goes to reinforce what I wrote a few posts ago; Hampshire does have an interesting history, but it is nowhere near as romantic as Dorset’s. I haven’t read anything yet to change my view.

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.
