Friends of Shoreham Fort

Shoreham Fort
Giving History a Future by Bringing History to Life

Built as a Palmerston prototype in 1857, on land acquired from the Duke of Norfolk, this new type of military fortification was designed as a trap to defend us from the French Emperor, Napoleon III. Not only the last fort of its kind, Shoreham Fort has some amazing connections:
  • The Charge of the Light Brigade
  • The First Artillery Train
  • Both World Wars
  • The start of the British Film Industry
With regular events such as their annual Easter Fun day, Military History Weekend in June and Heritage Open Days in September, the Friends of Shoreham Fort (FoSF) not only bring the site back to life but they make history fun for all ages. Their Remembrance Evening in November is a very special event too. The site is open to the public 7 days a week but the FoSF have fortnightly open days with tours and refreshments available too.....
