Bingham Town Map

Beer, Gas & Rubble

Guided Walk

Meet outside Bobby’s Restaurant, Stoke Road, Gosport, PO12 1JB

This circular guided walk traces a small area of Gosport, known as Newtown but also nicknamed Bingham Town after the man who, in the 1830’s built the houses and named the roads after his children. It also housed the old gas works, the dump and a couple of long lost pubs.

Very little remains of the area now but by using photographs and his own recollections of living there during the 1950s, your Guide, Dave Russell, brings memories of the area alive. He’ll include stories of some well known characters and other information of historical interest.

Duration: approx 1 hr.
