Castle Goring, Arundel Road , Worthing - South Downs (NP)

Large house. Built by Shelley's grandfather, Sir Bysshe Shelley, about 1797-8. The house has been in a very poor condition for number of years. In 2013 the house was sold to a private individual who is now using it as a private residence and wedding/conference venue. Consent for this change of use has been granted and repairs to the roof, stairs and structural timbers have been carried out but further repairs remain necessary, including to the glass dome.
