Gosport

The advertisement for the event

Gosport is a Borough town situated on the south coast of England, within the county of Hampshire. It has approximately 85,000 to 100,000 permanent residents with a further 5,000 to 10,000 during the summer months. It is part of the South Hampshire area and lies on a peninsula on the western side of Portsmouth Harbour opposite the City of Portsmouth, to which it is linked by a pedestrian ferry.

Gosport is the largest town in Britain without an operational railway station. The Gosport Ferry provides quick access to Portsmouth Harbour railway station, terminus of the Portsmouth Direct Line to London. Due to heavy traffic in and out of the Gosport area the ferry is very well used.

We attended a Classic Car fair in Gosport on the 15th February 2015, the weather was the nicest day of the year so far with glorious warm sunshine which was unexpected after the awful downpours of the last few days.

We left the house about 09.30 to be in Gosport at the Bayside Cabin for the 10am start time to be met by some really beautiful classics from all over the world. It was very apparent that a lot of money had been spent on the cars in restoration works.

The idea of the event was to bring in customers to the Cafe of course, but to also allow those with these beautiful cars to show them off in the large in the large adjoining car park next to the Bayside Cabin.

Whilst in the area we drove around and stopped occasionally for the odd picture.
