A Saxon Naval Base in Chichester Harbour by Philip MacDougall

Philip has written a number of books on the subject of naval dockyards both in this country and elsewhere and will bring his expertise to the subject of this local dockyard that once served the royal fleet of King Harold. Talk to be held at 7.30 pm at Emsworth Community Association. Members £3 Non members £4.
