Shoreham Fort

Giving History a Future by Bringing History to Life

built at Shoreham Fort.

Doing our bit to remember.

During the First World War, Shoreham and the surrounding area housed many soldiers in training camps. Training trenches, shooting ranges, and grenade pits were installed to train anything up to 100,000 men at a time.
