A former Royal Navy slaughterhouse built in the 1850s to please Queen Victoria could be converted into offices.

The Grade II-listed building, part of Royal Clarence Yard (RCY) in Gosport, replaced an earlier slaughterhouse that upset the Queen and Prince Albert because of the stench it produced.

They often travelled to Gosport by rail on their way to Osborne House on the Isle of Wight.

The terminus was in Spring Garden Lane and the Royal couple demanded a new station be built nearer Portsmouth Harbour. But the original slaughterhouse was close by and had to be moved.

Now its successor, most recently used as a gym, will be converted into 20 office "pods" if the scheme is approved.

Built in the 1820s, RCY was one of three main sites that supplied naval ships with food and drink.

The proposed development aims to provide flexible short-term office space for people who undertake remote work, work alone or require meeting space they can hire on an hourly or daily basis.

A public notice giving details of the scheme has been published by Gosport Borough Council, which will decide the application.
