Littlehampton Fort, Littlehampton - Arun

C19 fort. The fort is partly covered in ivy which poses the main threat to the structure. Other parts of the fort are engulfed by sand dunes which have Site of Special Scientific Interest status. A project to remove the ivy from the fort walls and ditches is in progress. This work is being undertaken by a local interest group in partnership with the owner and will help to inform understanding of the risks to the monument and guide a long-term strategy for its management.
