Head along the waterfront south and over Haslar Bridge to view the historical Fort Blockhouse and Submarine Museum.
Hold on to your hats as you head over ‘pneumonia’ bridge, to discover more about Haslar, its significance as a Naval Hospital, and the submarine training tower. On your return, you will discover Trinity Green, ‘Pressgang Alley’ and examine the sometimes overlooked features of the High Street. Look up and down to ensure you don’t miss anything!
