Kickstart our guidebook! – Friday, 7th October '16

It's been a busy few weeks here, preparing for our up and coming Kickstarter launch of our souvenir guide book.


We're hoping that this can be used to fund a design and initial print run of a souvenir guidebook all about the Fort. Including a brief tour, history about the fort, the film studio, the Forts role in both wars, and more, we really hope that this will be a guidebook that can be enjoyed by all ages.

Please support our kickstarter campaign and support your Fort.

And here it is:

Volunteer day – Sunday, 9th October '16

We've got another volunteer day coming soon - Sunday 9th October. Anyone is welcome to join in and help out, and there are always plenty of jobs to be done - or why not just come down for a cuppa and a chat?

Tours will be at 1pm and 3pm.

Remembrance Evening – Sunday, 13th November '16

A quick reminder that our Remembrance Evening will be taking place on Sunday 13th November. Come along and light a tea light for someone who is in your thoughts.

Watch this space for more details!

  • 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 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.

If you're able to help, or have contact with someone who can, then please let us know


Do you recognise one of these names? Perhaps a family member or friends family?

  • R.Streader
  • H.Westlake
  • E.Nightengale

Let us know - They might be connected to the 1st Sussex Artillery Volunteers who were based at Shoreham. Any information is greatly appreciated.
