987 – A bad man always blames his…Resources

In 2015, I developed the concept of locality. The thing about Locality is that it acted like a kind of framework, bringing together a lot of my interests; walking, photography, history, just knowing about the area.

In comparison to Wareham, the history of which goes back to the romans and the Saxons, and I’m probably sure before. I have to confess that I was very surprised Gosport’s (note; not Alverstoke or Rowner) history really goes back only around one millennium. But what a thousand years it has been, especially the last few hundred.

There is some very obvious evidence of Gosport’s history not the least of which are six of the Palmerston Forts, and the ramparts – Gosport’s defences.

Three rather good museums serve to highlight aspects of Gosport’s history, particularly the role the military continues to have, admittedly to a lesser extent today. Although I think the link between the town and the diving museum needs to be explored a bit. Gosport itself was home to HMS Dolphin, a submarine base. The Submarine Escape tower which was decommissioned in 2020 is a clear link but what is the link with the specialist equipment in the museum?

I enjoy writing about the town, but one thing I would really like to do is vlog. I am beginning to think that I should put more effort in to that. It’ll be good practice for Dorset.

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.
