Listed Structures at Risk in Portsmouth Naval Base

The Naval Dockyards Society has in recent years been pursuing a campaign calling for repairs to a number of disused historic buildings and docks within Portsmouth Naval Base, which are in a state of decay. To help inform this campaign a series of freedom of information requests was made to the Ministry of Defence, asking for details of expenditure on these structures over the last eleven years.
