Peter Keat returns with an industrial
journey “Along the Portsmouth Direct"
Initially taking in
the Isle of Wight we will move from Portsmouth Harbour as far as Petersfield. Along
the way are the MOD Railways, Portsmouth Brickworks and Gas Works. There is a
brief look at the Army connection at Hilsea and the airfield on the other side
of the line. Passing through Farlington we will look at the Racecourse, the Horse
Hospital and the famous Starfish Project. There is a trip along the Hayling
Island line. After the site of the Battle of Havant it’s Rowlands Castle then
onward past a house of ill repute and through the tunnel to Petersfield.
Club outings in July and August - some idea of likely numbers needed soon - come prepared!
