Burn off all that Christmas food! – Saturday, 15th January '17

We will be back at the fort with out first volunteer day of 2017, on the 15th of January. Come down and volunteer for the day - it's a great way to start burning off all the holiday treats!!

From the 15th, we will be holding volunteer days every fortnight (always on a Sunday). Keep a look out for updates on our events too! All of the dates for 2017 can be found on our Events page.

  • 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.

  • 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 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?

  • W.E.Winton
  • A.Gadd
  • A.Woolver

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