The Sea Wall at Hill Head - Fareham Planniing Committee 26 April 2017

Fareham decide to go ahead with ugly sea wall repair at Hill Head

P/17/0262/FP Reconstruction of 150 metres of Seawall at Hill Head - Fareham Planning Committee Meeting 26th April 2017

The promenade at Hill Head is part of a much loved sea front that runs for about 4 to 5 miles from the Meon Road Chalets to the Fort at Gilkicker.  Throughout that length on comparable stretches there are no walls and railings between promenade and beach and that is a vista the Hill Head residents would like to keep in place.

The reason that a section of the sea wall at Hill Head was undermined last year, was not so much that the structure was weak, which it was, but that the shingle beach moved away to the east from under it because the wooden groynes had not been maintained and the one immediately to the east of the problem had effectively disappeared altogether. The Council have now repaired all the wooden groynes and dumped a great deal of shingle in

THE Mary Rose Museum has been recognised with an award.

The museum, which houses Henry VIII’s flagship at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, received a gold award for large visitor attraction of the year at the Beautiful South Awards.

The purpose-built museum opened in May last year and displays the 16th-century Tudor warship’s hull along with many thousands of the 19,000 artefacts found with it.

It has since welcomed hundreds of thousands of visitors and won a raft of awards.

Paul Griffiths, head of operations at The Mary Rose Trust, said: ‘We are absolutely delighted to have won this award. It has been a wonderful year for the Mary Rose Museum and the city of Portsmouth and this award is an amazing end to the year.

‘We have an exceptional and dedicated team of staff and volunteers at the Mary Rose Trust and this award is testament to all their hard work.’

The awards were held at the Grand Brighton Hotel.

The Mary Rose saw 34 years of service before it sank while leading an attack on a French invasion fleet in 1545.

It was discovered in 1971 and raised from the seabed of the Solent in 1982.
