With the South Downs on the skyline, the railway bridge crosses the River Adur - Worthing to the left; Shoreham and Brighton to the right. The West Coastway Line now runs between Southampton and Brighton.

Here at Shoreham, the railway opened in 1840 to Brighton with stations at Shoreham and Kingston. By 1845 a line including a wooden trestle bridge (replaced by current steel bridge in 1911) over the River Adur was opened. By 1844 trains went to London via Brighton in 2 hours 38 minutes (web info: Howard B).
