Stokes Bay is an area littered with marks of the past, with many information boards. For the landscape historian it is full of promise and has an intriguing story to tell. The designation of Gosport as a Heritage Action Zone by Historic England, and of Stokes Bay a Conservation Area, provides new momentum for landscape studies. Historic England has produced several reports on the area, notably one of 2019 with lidar base mapping.
