Police Barracks and Guard House (Event from 2023)



Guided Walk

Hornet Services Sailing Club, Haslar Road, Gosport, Hampshire, PO12 2AQ

Chance to see inside the only gunboat yard to have been built by the British Navy!

This Victorian yard was designed and built by William Scamp for the housing and repair of British gunboats from 1856 to 1906. Since then, it has retained its association with coastal craft, notably as a site for HMS Hornet from 1912 to1973, and more recently as home to the Hornet Services Sailing Club. Members of HSSC are leading this guided tour.

You’ll find out about the conservation project and see inside historic buildings such as the former Police Station and Guardhouse, also the Watch-towers.

Duration 60 minutes.
