Barracks, Forts and Ramparts, Regeneration challenges for Portsmouth Harbour’s defence heritage
Celia Clark and Martin Marks
After centuries of playing their part in the defence of the nation, the UK no longer needs the barracks, forts, victualling and ordnance yards, ramparts and military lines. They have had to find new uses. This book explores their new roles from concept to future planning. As a microcosm of the many challenges of how to reuse former defence sites and how to create new sustainable futures for them, Portsmouth Harbour’s experience in the last half century offers useful lessons to once defence-dominated communities around the world who are seeking new roles for this specialised physical legacy.
