The hidden heritage of Gosport is to go on display at a series of open days.

A series of free walks, talks, tours and shows will be held over four days from Thursday to Sunday.

Highlights of Gosport’s Heritage Open Days include free tours of the Diving Museum, Fort Brockhurst and St Mark’s Churchyard and a chance to explore the grounds and pet cemetery of Bay House, the town’s only stately home.

Visitors can go onboard the ML Medusa, the restored Motor Boat that led the Americans to Omaha Beach during D-Day and the Steam Pinnace 199 at the Maritime Workshop.

Terry Rhodes, chairperson of Gosport Heritage Open Days said: ‘This is a wonderful opportunity to experience behind the scenes of many of the buildings and places in Gosport.’
