Stokes Bay Moat

Victorian Defences of Stokes Bay: Stokes Bay Moat

In 2011 Gosport Borough Council in partnership with Hampshire County Council funded three Interpretation boards to be placed at intervals along the Bay next to the new off-road cycle path. David Moore of the Palmerston Forts Society was asked to design and produce these three boards with the remit that they show visitors the Victorian history of the old Stokes Bay moat system and associated defences. Sadly the boards were not placed appropriately and in some cases are displayed the wrong way round!
