Choices At The Clocktower
Community Courses in Partnership with Hampshire Futures
Introduction to Local History Part 2
Time: 12.30 – 2.30 pm
Duration: 5 weeks
Start: 13th January 2020
This Part 2 course builds upon the story of Gosport’s development covered in Part 1, although students do not need to have attended Part 1 as the topics in Part 2 stand on their own merit. It is not meant to be a chronological history, as students will be interested in different aspects of the town’s character, history, independence and vitality. So the course will focus on a range of relevant themes.
What will I discover?
Gosport has a great deal of history to explore! We will look at aspects of social and cultural changes through time and consider various topics which will include:
- Royal Clarence Yard-Feeding the Forces
- Healthy Gosport
- Leisure and Pleasure
- Lee on the Solent
- Going to School
- Some Gosport Celebrities
- Keeping the Sabbath
No prior knowledge is necessary – just an interest in local history and the origins of the community in which you live.
