IN PERSON

Guided Walk

Haslar Royal Naval Cemetery, Clayhall Road, Alverstoke, PO12 2BB

A brief oral history of Haslar Hospital and the origins of the Hospital cemeteries from the opening of the Hospital to the present day, with photographs displayed in the cemetery mortuary chapel, followed by an informative walk through the cemetery when the guide will detail the many historic events and stories linking the listed monuments and graves, the Royal Navy and Gosport.

Gosport and ‘Turk Town’, why has our old town got this name? Could the mystery be solved by looking at the Turkish graves that lie here?

The cemetery is a site of special scientific interest, full of wonderful trees and other flora. Our very special ‘Autumn Lady’s Tresses’, a beautiful tiny orchid will be seen in abundance.

Lying alongside Alver Lake the cemetery is a Haven of peace and tranquillity.

Lots to see, touch and hear, plus time for peaceful reflection. If you have an interest in our naval history and the part Gosport’s seamen and submariners played, then this event could be for you!
