928 – A meal out.

Avenue 141 is a bit of a special restaurant. An annex of Fareham College, it is run entirely by the students who are on various courses. Chefs, waiting staff, managers. There are usually three or four choices on the menu for starters, mains and desserts. I had halloumi with salad, followed by steak with the cheeseboard as dessert. The food was really delicious, and the staff (students) were meticulous in their service. A delightful experience that I expect to repeat before long. What then is the link between that and the header picture?

Absolutely none.

The picture is of the tunnel that around 1844 Prince Albert, Queen Victoria’s husband had punched through Gosport’s defensive ramparts. I have no idea what the Navy must have thought of that, but seeing as it was for the ruler of Britains empire there’s not a lot they could do about it.

The iron work of the railway line extends forward of the tunnel by only a few yards until it reaches the roadside fence line. Up until after the war it went across the road to Gosport railway station and was very important to the navy allowing as it did the conveying of bulk resources to one of the navy’s main victualling facilities at Clarence yard.

Part of the iron works extends for about 40 yards out behind where I was standing take this picture. Here’s a picture of that;

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.
