Wow!!! 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 […]
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 […]
Easter Fun Day We’re well in to planning and getting organised for our Easter Fun Day – watch this space for more information. Research Hilary’s been at it again, and produced another interesting essay, all about Francis Lyndhurst who started the Film Studio at the Fort. Read all about him here. Funding It’s hard to […]
We at Shoreham Fort can't do any of the work we are able to without the help and support of many people, if you would like to contribute please click the donate button below. Your donations will go towards materials and equipment to help us restore the Fort.

Purchased with funding raised through a week of community fundraising in Shoreham Branch
A big THANK-YOU to Santander for the donation!
We were very fortunate to have been donated the doors to the Nissen hut and Food of Fort by Vivo Vision in Worthing. Unfortunately, with the break in, the door and window to Food for Fort is damaged and has been boarded up since September. It would be incredible if there was anyone out there who could help us with the replacement of these broken items.
We have four main events of the year, the biggest being our Military History Weekend - Sponsors of any of our events would be very welcome - please contact us

We are getting to the end of the useful life of our trowels, hand garden forks and equipment that we use for carefully weeding around the Scheduled Monument. Any small hand tools would be gratefully received. As would kneeling mats and gloves.
The Dream........ We really are working on this but relying on others is a very frustrating process ;)
This year we were able to purchase 40 chairs, 40 clipboards, an A Frame easel and dry marker pens to complete our classroom facility in the Nissen hut. This was all made possible by the Shoreham and Southwick Rotary who we help when we can with book donations and especially at Christmas with our very own version of Elf and Safety lol Thank you for your continued support
A big THANK-YOU to Rotary Club of Shoreham & Southwick for the donation!
With a partial award for an application to Sussex Community Foundation we have been able to increase our outreach and education programme; therefore increasing word of mouth of our project and engaging the wider community in a positive and proactive manner.
A big THANK-YOU to Sussex Community Foundation for the donation!
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 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.
