Shoreham & Southwick

Adur in the Past

This friendly group meets on the 4th Wednesday monthly at 2.00pm in Room 1 at the Shoreham Centre.

Group members participate in finding out what has happened to the area in the past, including the coastline from Brighton to Worthing and northwards as well, as the River Adur was an important conduit to the coast.

There is so much to research in this area and it is interesting to find. For example: Events of the past; to learn more of the people who lived here; what were the houses and buildings like; what of the shops & pubs, some of which still exist today; was there smuggling here; what took place in the 'secret' bunker on Truleigh Hill during the war; how has the coastline changed; churches and religion; but there's lots more as well. If you have no computer for research the library has many books that can be used and also maps.

Come along and join us
