Get hold of reports on:

Royal Clarence Yard (Gosport) and Gunwharf Quays (Portsmouth) from the SMR/Curators...........
Not comprehensive but a good start.

You could try the museum just inside the dockyard, access from the Gosport ferry side

Hullo Trowelhead. Another place to look would be the Portsmouth Papers, a good local history research report series. You can find a list of reports available from Portsmouth Museums at

Good luck,
