Three years ago I reviewed the fort making favourable comparisons with how it was in my childhood. Unfortunately I couldn’t really point to any real progress in restoration since then. The flood defence works along both sides of the river have now finished but this seems to have also resulted in a tightening in local parking restrictions and a revamp of the car park almost as if an increase in parking revenue seemed to be regarded as a good idea. If you are planning a visit I would suggest leaving your car in the free car park in Harbour Way which is only a hundred metres away. It’s still an interesting historic place for a brief visit but unfortunately not likely to be in the top rank of places to visit locally any time soon. That’s a shame but I hope the future will treat the old fort sympathetically.

The ruins of the fort have been partially restored and there is quite a bit here to see. The local society have done a very good job of making this area accessible - you can walk all around it and then up steps to the sea facing ramparts. There are large information boards which tell you a lot about the forts history and usage, It is sited at the entrance to the port of Shoreham (opposite the light house and RNLI station) and you can go west along the beach. The fort isn't very wheelchair friendly as such - you can get around if the ground is dry. On the beach there is a board walk for a good distance for wheelchairs or just those who don't want to walk on pebbles. There is some on-road parking in the area, but also a pay and display car park next to the fort.

A bit of a letdown. It is just a mound of earth and a few fortified walls. I had a much more interesting time taking a few steps & talking to the people on duty at the adjacent Coastguard station & exploring the nearby harbour.

Shoreham old fort should have lottery funding for this tourist attraction to be completed. This could be a winner with restaurant with views across to lifeboat station. Come on people of shoreham this is history.
