QUESTION CORNER: Email queries from our readers

"I'm a resident in Fareham and am considering creating a piece of work which is based on a family in Gosport.
My interest focuses more on the nickname 'Turk Town' and if you have information or could point me a direction where I can gain some knowledgeable resources; I'd be greatly appreciative.
I have an initial idea which i would like to cultivate but need some supporting material to add realism and credibility.
Are you or anyone able to help at all? "info@mygosport.org


"Can anyone please tell me the name of the church which was situated in the wooded area very near to the old station house at station road opposite HMS Sultan and near to the new estate of Redhouse Park Gardens, the old railway is now a cycle path.
I would like to know where I can get some information about the old church please."
If anyone knows the answer please email to info@mygosport.org


Somebody was asking what was the name of the wooden church opposite HMS Sultan, I think it was the Royal Air Force Church, my Mum and Dad were married there in 1941 what happened to the place?- From Wendy in Australia - any ideas?

Does anyone have any  pictures of the Forum Cinema in Stoke Road?

"I own the sailing yacht Driac, designed by Charles Nicholson and built by Camper and Nicholsons at Gosport in 1930. I would very much like to know her launch date, which I believe was in June, as I would like to celebrate her 80th birthday. (she will be taking part in the Three Peaks Yacht Race in June). I wonder whether you can tell me where I might find out more about this; do you still have the old company records in Gosport and if not can you tell me where to find them?"

Answer from Mick Bucksey
Ex project / repairs manager C&N
"I cannot tell you what month she was made but she was yard number 373. ( Shamrock V was 370). The original owner was A G H Macpherson and it looks like the original name was Marlin.
She was built at Gosport and was one of sixteen boats built that year. Hope this helps."

With Camper and Nicholson's Boatyard now only a part of Gosport Memory, I have compiled a selection of photographs showing the famous Gosport Boatyard at the height of its power.



360 degree views around the Harbour

The Borough of Gosport sits on a peninsular facing the City of Portsmouth on one side and the Solent looking out to the Isle of Wight on the other, with Fareham forming it's landward border.. Formed by the amalgamation of the villages of Alverstoke, Brockhurst, Forton, Elson, Lee on the Solent, Bridgemary and Rowner, it has evolved from a bustling Naval armaments dormitory to a thriving yachting and boating town, for ever in touch with it's nautical traditions from it's early history to the 21st century


Our "my gosport" web offers a comprehensive review in both text, images and video of the Borough of Gosport together with it's surrounding environments, ashore and afloat.

   Fun Facts
By volume, the ocean makes up 99 percent of the planet's living space -- the largest space in our universe known to be inhabited by living organisms.

The planet's deepest spot is the Mariana Trench in the Pacific floor, six miles deep. For comparison, Mt. Everest is five miles high! The average depth of the ocean is about two miles.

Earth's largest continuous mountain chain is the Mid-Ocean Ridge, stretching for 40,000 miles, rising above the surface of the water in a few places, such as Iceland.
