The current Newhaven Fort structure was built around the 1860’s and is the largest work of defence ever constructed in Sussex. It has stood firm as a vital element in Britain’s coastal defence through two World Wars. Following its abandonment as a military fortification, Newhaven Fort suffered years of incredible neglect and dereliction but has now been restored.
Gary Baines has worked with Newhaven Cliff Fort for numerous years and continues to support them and advises them.
For this Fort to continue as a much needed museum it needs help.
