Welcome to our website

We really hope you enjoy our website and that you come back often to follow our progress…. Our ‘irregular’ newsletters will also ensure you don’t miss the important news and events at the Fort – sign up here!

If you’ve visited the fort then please fill out our survey. We also have one for our events, please do let us know how it was for you.

If you are part of a community group/organisation, we can come to you with our presentation or offer you a group tour, or just have a general enquiry.

Do you have any photos that you’d like to share with us? See the Photo-stream for more information.

For a small annual fee, you can become a member and find out more about Shoreham Fort’s history – one of our volunteers regularly find gems of information for us to share with you. Find out more! If you regularly volunteer at the fort we give you a years membership for free as a small token of our appreciation so come and join in the fun on our fortnightly volunteer day.


Fantastically productive day Sunday with Stuart strimming around the inside of the ditch.

It looks so much better now but on walking around it does look like we may have a problem with someone metal detecting on site. This is of course illegal as we are a Scheduled Ancient Monument.

Can we please ask anyone who often walks the area to maybe have a walk around the western side of the inside ditch and if you see anyone doing anything untoward please do ring 101 and report it quoting Ref 1098 1st August 2016, crime number 47160104037.

Thank you

AGM – 2016


What can we say, other than thank you, for the huge support that was shown last night at our AGM and Trevor Povey’s talk.

The Sussex Yacht Club provided the perfect venue, once again, and were amazing hosts… We’d like to thank you very much for being so accommodating, sorting everything for us, rearranging the room and bringing up those extra chairs – thank goodness you did though as there weren’t many empty space in the 70 laid out…lol

Thank you also to Trevor. Your support of the project, and us, means and awful lot to us personally and we are genuinely grateful that you so willingly give your time for us. It wouldn’t be the same without you so same time next year…?

I think those of you who were there will agree that the combination of Craig’s video of 1977 ~ 2015 and our commissioned video of ‘The Dream’ was spot on. We now hope that with this dream firmly planted in the forefront of your minds you will see what we see and it will inspire you to get involved and help move this project forward.

Thank you must finally go to our dedicated team of volunteers. Many were in the room last night but some of whom I didn’t get a chance to talk to properly, I’m so sorry. Thank you from all the Trustees for your time, commitment and dedication to this project. Thank you also for being part of our fort family…

We’re now going to hibernate for a couple of days but we’ll be back on site on February 14th between 11:00 ~ 16:00, with a tour at 14:00.

Thank you all once again for coming, we honestly couldn’t do it without you as our supporters and volunteers.

People are genuinely surprised when we tell them how few volunteers we have that come on site on a regular basis to help maintain and conserve the site for the enjoyment of the public. If you think you would like to get involved with this amazing project then please do get in touch via enquiries@shorehamfort.co.uk or come down on one of our volunteer days. It may look like it\'s all hard, manual work but there really is a job for all.
