The area of Old Portsmouth is also known as Spice Island which is where all the spices used to enter the city. The area features many historical buildings and features. The old defences are still in place and you can walk along the hot walls, part of the fortifications for the harbour entrance. The area of Old Portsmouth is these days home to the fishermen of Portsmouth.

I don't quite know what gave me an itch in my undercrackers so bad that I just had to leave the house at 4am to make this video, not even knowing where I was going hahaha.
But if it's anyone's fault I feel I must partly blame this fella:
He's been getting me at it just lately ;-))
Thank you to Anthony, the fisherman, for saying a few words in this clip. If you hadn't guessed, he's a local boy.
I used 3 cheapish cameras for this video, all with differing formats: 25p, 30p and 60p so if you notice some glitches it's because I'm struggling to cope. Thanks to Keen Johns for his help. Vimeo is great for its helpful community!
Some of the vehicle shots are a bit jangly as nearly every street on Spice Island is cobbled.
