Over in a quiet corner of Portsea Island, far away from the historic dockyards of old Portsmouth, the designer shopping at Gun Wharf Quays and the seaside scene at Southsea, at the very southeast corner lies Eastney.

 Langston harbour is shallow at the best of times, the tide runs out fast through the narrow gap between Eastney and Hayling Island leaving exposed mud flats and boats dried out to await the next high water.

 The area is a little neglected and maybe that’s part of it’s charm, with a collection of old and interesting boats, even houseboats, some propped up above the high water mark.


  1. I used to live not far from there, and loved it... My old boat was sold to a chap who has her moored somewhere down there......

  2. Steve, Erica used to teach at langstone so I used to go over that way quite often - there's a sailing club tucked up in the corner there, nice part of Pompey.
