Description

The huge chalk ridge of Portsdown Hill stands like a protective barrier north of the city of Portsmouth, to be seen from almost every part. In ancient times it was early man, whose burial mounds were visible until the middle of the last century; in Victorian times the hill was a defence for the town, when Palmerston's great dream of a line of forts to beat a French invasion were constructed upon its ridge; and today the hill forms a viewpoint for visitors to enjoy the unrivalled vista of the Solent and the Isle of Wight and the great panorama from Fawley in the west to Chichester in the east. In Portsdown Panorama, a new collection of more than 130 images, renowned local author Anthony Triggs shows that Portsdown Hill has its own story to tell with an historic 5 mile pictorial tour of one of the most interesting areas of downland in the South of England.
