The Fort has enjoyed thirty years as a fantastic day out for all the family, but reports in the local newspapers suggest a possible sale to a private company. Lets hope this historic site remains open for the people of Newhaven and tourists that visit our town.

I can remember being in the Fort for a party on coronation day 1953. I'm pretty sure it rained, I seem to think we had paper plates and some got thrown around. Can anyone else recall being there?

These great photos brought back happy memories for me of attending some of the events at the fort during the time I lived in Newhaven. Thanks.

I was there for that, Terry. I got a mug which I still own.
