SOUTHSEA ROSE GARDEN

SOUTHSEA ROSE GARDEN

Fragrant and colourful rose garden residing inside what was one "Lump's Fort", a fortification dating back to the 19th century, at least. In 1942, this was where the 'boom patrol', aka 'the Cockleshell Heroes' trained. There is a memorial plaque to them at the entrance to the garden.
