We had intended to follow the path between the lakes and on to the common, but it seems that all the recent rain and snow has resulted in an increase in the size of the lake........................
So instead we walked back along the shore towards Eastney and at the far end of the common we discovered the old Sea Lock from 1822.
There used to be a canal running from here to Portsmouth city centre which was built as part of an initiative to link Portsmouth with London.
Next we found a wreck which Hannah found fascinating and a little bit scary! It was amazing to be able to see the structure of the rotting hull, and a little bit 'famous fivey' too!!
