Gunboat Sheds and Workshops, Haslar Gunboat Yard - Gosport

A row of ten gunboat sheds and three maintenance workshops, designed in 1856 by William Scamp of the Admiralty Works Department as part of the Haslar Gunboat Yard for the housing and repair of British gunboats, and their successor craft, of the Royal Navy. The adjacent traverser system was used for their launch and movement. The site ceased to be used in the mid-1970s, but remained in MOD ownership. Once vacant, condition deteriorated, with only minimum maintenance undertaken. The site was recently sold and discussions about sustainable and appropriate re-use are ongoing.
