Event description

Description

The Portsea Lost Heritage Walk will be held on Saturday 23 September 2017, 10.00 from Portsmouth Historic Dockyard Gate on The Hard, to St John the Evangelist RC Cathedral, led by Dr Ann Coats, University of Portsmouth. Contact: ann.coats@port.ac.uk


The walk will last 2-2½ hrs with a break halfway

The distance is approximately 0.8miles/1.3 km.

If the weather is too bad on the day the walk will be cancelled and rescheduled.


Aim of the Walk: to gather ideas and opinions from the public via a short Questionnaire about what heritage places should be included in a Heritage Trail, what might improve green spaces and how to link these places by walking.


Following the Dockyard Wall, we shall locate the vanished sites of the Brewery, the Daniel Street Chapel, St John’s Church and St John’s RC chapel. Three streets: Marlborough Row, Gloucester Street and Frederick Street were taken into the Dockyard in 1944. What do street names tell us about Portsea’s history?


It will connect heritage and green places and explore questions based on the Placecheck Model: https://placecheck.info/en/doing-your-placecheck/ including, ‘What do you like?’, ‘What do you dislike?’ and ‘What do we need to improve?’


Since 2013 Dr Ann Coats, University lecturer in Heritage Property, has run the Portsea Heritage Project to engage residents and students in the heritage of Portsea. A number of ideas have emerged, including a trail. This walk will gather ideas and opinions from walkers.


The walk is free and open to all. It is supported by Friends of the Earth as part of their Walking in Portsmouth Campaign, Portsea Action Group and Food Portsmouth.


Advice

  • Wear weatherproof clothes, hat and sturdy shoes and carry water

  • Be aware of uneven pavements and some risk from moving buses, especially on The Hard

  • Walk in small groups and consider other pedestrians


We hope you will enjoy the walk
