Have your say

There is a rare opportunity to go inside a Gosport listed building tomorrow.

The Grade II-listed former bakery and slaughterhouse at Royal Clarence Yard is open to the public for a Christmas craft and food market.

It is open from 11am to 4pm and entry is free.

Neither the bakery nor the slaughterhouse is normally open to the public, so this is a rare opportunity to see inside these impressive buildings.

The slaughterhouse remains un-modernised and contains many of the original features, while the bakery features the original iron ovens used to bake bread for the navy in the 19th century.

There will be stalls with a range of gifts, crafts and wrapped 
food on sale.

It will feature a pop-up café and exhibition in the former bakery, a wood-fired pizza and a mobile bar on the Waterfront.

There are artist galleries in North Meadow to visit and a café in the listed Pump House in Cooperage Green.
