Our heritage is being lost, without the Friends of Shoreham Fort, Shoreham Fort will be left to deteriorate, as its remote location leaves it wide open to the elements and serious cases of vandalism, which have been even more evident through Covid, due to the volunteers being unable to be on site.


By the maintenance and conservation of the site the Friends of Shoreham Fort will ensure that our future generations will be able enjoy this hidden gem on the south coast. By rebuilding our hugely popular outreach programme we will ensure every generation has an opportunity to learn about the unique and diverse history that the site holds.
