Fascinating site and full of local history. Great place to visit especially when the volunteer tours are available and workers on site to talk to!

I used to play here back in the 50’s and I am so pleased to see all the good work you are doing ~ keep it up and thank you!

I take all my visitors to the area to the fort. Being free and having so much history makes a walk on the beach much more interesting (especially to my Canadian visitors).

Great Website and Plenty off History to Explore. Remember playing on here as a Child who would think years later One of My family members was in the royal artillery down here.
The Fort is well worth a visit for the day Kids can go on the beach and then a Spot off fishing off the Arm and a stroll around the Fort with a drink and cake from there Beach hunt cafe. Your be suprised what goes on down at the Fort so go to the Website and Find out More! Keep up the good Work Gary and Friends or shoreham Fort.

So pleased to see the transformation that is taking place.

Good luck with the continuing restoration…

The restoration work is looking good, must visit next time I am in the area.

Very intersting information and pictures, would like to visit if i was ever down in the Area.

Sorry I can’t get to the remembrance service at the fort today. I will be there in spirit, and try to bring some Southern California weather with me!

Thank you for the great tour of the fort today it was fascinating to learn more of the history. I had no idea that filming used to take place. My twins loved the underground part of the tour. Keep up the good work.

We're always in need of equipment, tools, and items at the fort... here's a few things on our wish list:

Renewal of IT/presentation equipment

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!

Newly equiped classroom facility

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!


Purchased with funding raised through a week of community fundraising in Shoreham Branch

A big THANK-YOU to Santander for the donation!

Door and window for Food for Fort

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

Hand tools

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 ;)


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.
