Welcome to our website

We really hope you enjoy our website and that you come back often to follow our progress…. Our regular 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.

Royal Sussex Living History Group

We’d like to share with you the fact that the Royal Sussex Living History Group’s website has been relaunched….

After years and years of research John Baines, Gary’s father, put together all the information he had collated and created this fitting tribute to those brave souls who lost their lives in WWI – in particular The Battle of the Boars Head on 30th June 1916, The Day Sussex Died.

We will Remember Them…
