Have your say

Two people can just be glimpsed disappearing up this country lane with Fort Widley in the distance on top of Portsdown Hill.

It’s hard to believe today that this is Southwick Hill Road, Cosham, with the entrance to Queen Alexandra Hospital on the left. At least I’m pretty sure I’ve got the right location.

If not, I know you’ll put me right. If I am correct, can anyone date it?
