This week, we're updating our course layouts and descriptions. Presentation and materials always gently change over time, but just occasionally there's a need to make a step change to clear out some of the old and roll in the new. That's now happening - but over a long and complex site it's not instant and you'll see sections of the site changing up to and including 19th September.

Portsmouth and Southsea ... and Chichester and Bognor Regis

On the south coat of England, between Brighton and Southampton, lies Portsmouth and its naval dockyards and Southsea which is the holiday "end" of the town. There's a great deal to see in the area.

This area of the south coast was peppered with airfields used during the second world war in the Battle of Britain ...and there's a fascinating museum at what was once RAF Tangmere, about 4 miles to the East of Chichester.

Hawket Hunter at Tangmere


We visited Tangmere on a quest. Lisa's putting together the calendar for the Bowerhill area of Melksham for 2006, and we wanted to get pictures of the Hawker Hunter flown by Neville Duke when he set the air speed record in 1953 ... since the plane was on display at the entrance to RAF Melksham for a number of years. You'll see from the number of easels and amount of "stuff" that clutters the plane just how important she is in history.
