TQ0201 : Littlehampton Fort

taken 9 years ago, near to Littlehampton, West Sussex, Great Britain

Littlehampton Fort
Littlehampton Fort
Built in 1854 at the same time as the one along the coast at Shoreham to guard the mouth of the Arun. Decommissioned in 1873 parts were dismantled in 1900 and the barracks followed in 1960. The fort is also gives a good indicator of how the dunes have spread in the last 150 years as it originally had a clear view of fire out to sea when constructed. Now overgrown with vegetation and off limits to the public as it falls within the fenced off area of the West Beach Nature Reserve.
