Between 1978 and 1980, there was an restoration project. This was undertaken by Fred Aldsworth and John Goodwin with the help of Manpower services. This photos on this page are of the Fort before the work started in 1977, and when it ended in 1980.
Unfortunately this work stopped due to lack of funding. It is the goal of the Future management volunteers to return the fort to this standard using as little funding as possible, in the hope that even through hard times the fort will never be neglected.
Both John Goodwin and Fred Aldsworth are still in touch with Gary Baines and receive updates as to how the Friends of Shoreham Fort are doing with the current plans.
