Under construction.  April 2017


This is the soon to be re-launched History Portal that you may have seen between 2008 and 2016 at   The old Portal was based on Joomla software which has become redundant – so we have migrated to the WordPress platform as this offers us a more stable, popular and user friendly base upon which to build the huge archive of historical information.

The original portal was huge and had 3000 photographs, 100’s of historical articles, and a large range of research materials, census and directory lists.  Our plan is to re-create all that material into a single history site. We have the ambition to create options for comment, discussion and contribution of more material related to the history of Shoreham-by-Sea in Sussex.

In time, we hope to re-open the original Shoreham Forum that ran from 2004 to 2016.   There is a subscribe option at the bottom of all pages, so you can be notified when new content is added to the site.

So please bear with us while we have the builders in!
