Fort Nelson is part of a massive ring of brick, masonry and earth forts, was built to provide the fire power to deter an enemy attack on Portsmouth from inland. Portsmouth was Britain’s premier naval dockyard, building and maintaining warships that were vital to the defence of Britain and her growing empire. Portsmouth faced the new French dockyard at Cherbourg, only a short 130 km (81 mile) journey for new steam-powered warships. The threat was not simply a direct naval assault. It was feared that a French invasion force might land elsewhere, occupy Portsdown Hill and fire their new, long-range guns to attack Portsmouth below from its landward side. However, despite strong words, the French did not steam across the Channel. By the time the Palmerston forts were completed, France had been humiliated by war with Prussia in 1870. Never used against invaders, the angular forts dominating the chalk ridge of Portsdown were soon called ‘Palmerston’s Follies’. Fort Nelson and the other Portsdown forts had cost a fortune to build. They were one of the biggest defences ever built in Britain.

PRICE £ 95/£85 Concessions

Going 4 a Pint is a one day painting and drawing course exploring art and the Industrial Revolution and how this, in turn, might influence us in the 21st Century. This is the first of a series of INDUSTRIAL ART workshops and we will look at the architecture (inside and out) of one of Hampshire’s best kept secrets, the Southwick Steam Brew house & The Golden Lion Public House, both of which offer a wealth of inspiration, whatever the weather!

You will respond to the LOCATIONS (inside and out) and produce a series of your own contemporary drawings looking at LINE SHAPE FORM, PATTERN, COLOUR & TONE under the expert tuition of artist Chris Wood.

Please bring your favourite wet and dry painting and drawing materials. A field easel and drawing board would also be advantageous.

The Brewhouse is situated in the yard at the back of the Golden Lion Public House. The Inn’s history can be traced from the early 17th Century. The present brewhouse is a fascinating example of a Victorian domestic brewery, a rare survival of a once common establishment. Built to supply the Inn, the premises also had a license to bottle brandy – a keg survives!

Please Note: The Southwick Victorian Steam Brewery is an original preserved Victorian Brewhouse and we regret that there is no disabled access to the machinery in the upper part of the building where much of this course will take place.
