A Visit to Shoreham Fort near Brighton

Last Sunday we visited Shoreham Fort which was built in 1857 during a period where England were worried about France. A lot of the fort has been removed but there is a group trying to get it rebuilt and there is still a lot to see for history buffs. It turned out our visit was during a re-enactment weekend with displays of musketry, cannon firing and other exhibitions. It was a great day out I was glad we went and saw the fort. To find out more about the fort you can go to the website at:

Below are a few photos of our visit and a cannon firing.

We live quite close to Shoreham and from Hove it is a short 10 minute train ride to the station and then half an hour walk through the town and along the beach to the fort.
