This is also pinched from The News website but is too good a story not to pass on: Hilsea Lines has received a grant that will mean some major improvements to access and the paths in the woodland. The old defence walls and the woodland at the top of the island is possibly one of the most under appreciated natural spaces on Portsea Island and is often forgotten. In a few months the area becomes even better with a huge carpet of bluebells. Looking forward to some winter walks up that way soon.
