Priddy’s Hard is an area of Gosport opposite Portsmouth Naval Dockyard. Some 200 years ago it was developed as a fort. It later became a armaments depot for the Royal Navy and a weapons and explosives store for the British Army. The site today is being slowly redeveloped. Much of the site is now housing but many of the most historic building have been and are part of the museum “Explosion” which tells the history of the site and British Naval Firepower.
