Rowing Boats At The Ready Lads

Recommended Posts

Getting to work without a boat could be a problem.

As seen in Doctor Who ("The Sea Devils").

Also used for 'Banged Up With Beadle', whatever the hell that was.

I'd prefer the sea devils!

Luxury Apartments Ready 2006/7

****NEWS FLASH OCTOBER 2005****

Work is progressing quite quickly, and we have now nearly completed interior sandblasting and priming of metalwork.

Introduction:

Horse Sand fort is an exciting new development of luxury apartments within a Palmerston Fort on the River Solent.

It will be a rare chance to reside offshore on one of Britains few man made islands. The apartments will be spacious and bold, offering residents the ultimate in seclusion.

A circular road forms the heart of Horse Sands, affectionately known as "The Street" where residents will be able to wander to meet other residents, or simply take in the sea air.

Horse Sands Fort has lain derelict for over 50 years, and the new owners Optima Ltd have begun a two year restoation project to bring the Fort back to its former glory.

Sustainability of the Fort has been guaranteed by choosing to develop the site into residential apartments, rather than a commercial venture such as a hotel or casino.

was it also used for that action game show with melinda messenger and a bunch of midgets (not cowboy builders co star dom littlewood, some different midgets)?

I'd forgotten all about that.

Fort Boyard

I think it was shot on a different fort though.

'the ultimate in seclusion'??????????

Stuck on tiny, locked in island with no free space and twenty other residents.

It'll end in moidah.

Some people pay good money to go on a cruise. Smaller space, more people crammed in :huh:

Some nice converted forts from Napoleonic times down here in the southwest. Picklecombe is almost a boat-required address: to get anywhere overland is a long, long way.

Almost tempting!

As a kid I went on an educational cruise. Dorms and bunk beds being the order of the day.

Good fun, although 32 years later, I'd want a bit more privacy.

Big Brother?

Anyway, got to love the optimism. The centre 'road'???? Chance to meet the other inmates, ahem I mean residents.

It does look like as prison though.

One posh persons villa, maybe. Flats? Seriously. A mental asylum of flat perhaps.
