Priddy’s Hard is part of Gosport opposite the Royal Naval Dockyard at Portsmouth in Hampshire, for some 200 years it was a restricted area 1st developed as a fort it later became an armaments depot (around 1777) for the Royal Navy basically a massive weapons and explosives store. Much of the site is now redeveloped as housing but some of the most interesting building are part of the explosions museum and open to the public.
