History

The Rowner area of the peninsula was known to have been settled in Saxon times (for instance, Cherque Farm) and Alverstoke (a village now within the boundaries of Gosport) was included in the Domesday Book [2]. Settlements in the wider region date back much earlier [3]. Doomesday Book (also known as Domesday, or Book of Winchester), was the record of the great survey of England completed in 1086, executed for William the Conqueror, that was similar to a census by a government of today. ...


The borough's name - an early name was Goseport - is believed to derive from "goose". An alternative etymology "gorse" (from the bushes growing on local heathland) is not supported by the regional name for the plant, "furze"; and that implied by the town's motto, "God's Port Our Haven", dates from the 19th century. [4] Species Ulex argenteus Ulex boivinii Ulex borgiae Ulex cantabricus Ulex densus Ulex europaeus - Common Gorse Ulex gallii - Western Gorse Ulex genistoides Ulex micranthus Ulex minor - Dwarf Gorse Ulex parviflorus Ref: ILDIS Version 6. ... Alternative meaning: Nineteenth Century (periodical) (18th century — 19th century — 20th century — more centuries) As a means of recording the passage of time, the 19th century was that century which lasted from 1801-1900 in the sense of the Gregorian calendar. ...


The Imperial Gazetteer of England & Wales (1870-72) gives the source of the name Gosport as God's Port to King Stephen in 1144 when he landed there in a storm.

The terminus was intended to serve Portsmouth across the water.

The trackbed of the former Gosport - Fareham railway is now a pedestrian walkway and cycle track. Gosport railway station has been retained for its historical and architectural value but is presently inaccessible and in poor condition. Proposals now exist to convert the platforms and buildings into a small number of residential properties and offices with the main gate in Spring Garden Lane opened up for vehicle access. A development of six terraced homes is also proposed for the North Western end of the site linking with George Street.

Gosport railway station was a terminus station designed by William Tite and opened to passenger and freight trains in 1841 by the LSWR. It was closed in 1953 to passenger trains, and in 1969 to the remaining freight services. ...


The station site has been linked with the South Hampshire Rapid Transit Scheme, which would make use of the former railway route (some of which still has track because of freight services), however at present Government policy has made this scheme appear less likely.
