The Explosion Museum (Priddy's Hard), Gosport was originally bought in 1750 by the Board of Ordnance from Jane Priddy (hence Priddy's Hard) and others to construct the defences of Portsmouth Harbour and the Dockyard. The defences were completed in 1756. Soon afterwards the gunpowder stores were relocated from Portsmouth to Priddy's Hard for safety reasons and in 1771 a magazine, office and cooperage were constructed. Officer's houses and large gardens were added in 1777.
In 1805 the Grand Magazine on the site was used to store Gunpowder that was delivered to Priddy's Hard from Waltham Abbey. Gunpowder was transported from this Magazine to the Trafalgar Fleet via a Camber Dock, the Fleet included Nelson's Flagship HMS Victory.
In 1861 C Magazine was built and in 1879 the largest magazine, E Magazine was built. During the 1860s the fortifications were strengthened incorporating brick gateways, carponniers and or covered firing positions to cover the moats, Armstrong guns were fitted to the two demi-bastions.
The site was fully utilised during the Second World War and was last used for significant naval activity during the Falklands Conflict in 1982, the site remained active until 1988.
Twelve untimely deaths have happened at Priddy's Hard as a result of accidental explosions and in one case an "unnatural" gust of wind, rumoured to be the evil spirit of a convict labourer who died in the same spot.
Sightings of the unfortunate souls have been rumoured by former workers of the Royal Navy Armaments Depot over the years including security guards that have looked after the listed buildings.
