A BIT OF HISTORY Built in the 19th Century, Newhaven Fort is the largest work of defence ever built in Sussex and is the last of a long series of coastal defences built on the cliffs overlooking Seaford Bay, dating back to the Iron Age. Back then, the River Ouse flowed into the sea at Seaford, but over the years the river silted up and in 1539 a new cut was made for the river to come out at the fishing village of Meeching. This quickly became known as the ‘New Haven’ giving the town and subsequently the Fort the name we know today. Newhaven Fort was one of 72 coastal forts to be commissioned by the British Government under Prime Minister Lord Palmerston, following the apparently threatening behaviour of Napoleon the Third, who was busy building his navy and strengthening his own coastal defences. Designed by 22-year-old Lieutenant John Charles Ardagh of the Royal Engineers, construction of Newhaven Fort began in 1862 and took ten years and 6 million bricks to complete. The total cost of the 72 coastal forts is thought to have been around £12,000,000.

City/town information

There is more to Brighton than the beachfront and The Lanes. If you think you know the city get ready to explore and discover, there is so much more! While we love the vibrant beachfront and the quirky Lanes, we are fortunate that Brighton & Hove is a city sandwiched in between the sea and the countryside. Here you will discover that the stunning South Downs National Park is within easy access of the city centre. Within the city itself there is a lot to see with the wider 'city villages' from the Regency splendour of Hove to the elegant eateries and lifestyle shops of Kemptown. Slightly further out is the picturesque village of Rottingdean, once the home of Rudyard Kipling.

At the heart of rural Sussex lies the beautiful county town of Lewes - a mixture of the unusual and intriguing and so typically Sussex. Its medieval streets, old English churches and tiny twittens (a Sussex word for alleyway) allow visitors a glimpse into the true essence of bygone Lewes. Although surrounded by chalk cliffs, the townscape is dominated by the remains of a Norman castle and is also home to the handsome townhouse of Anne of Cleves (fourth wife of King Henry Vlll). Lewes also claims host to numerous contemporary art galleries and historic & special interest sites including the once mighty Priory of St. Pancras - a casualty of the dissolution of the monasteries. Lewes is a market town of small, specialist, independent retailers and on certain days, the subtle aromas wafting from Harvey’s Brewery will attract any visitor to Cliffe High Street. Bookshops, boutiques and antique centres sit alongside individual craft workshops, and the restaurants, cafes, and pubs offer delicious choices all year round with real emphasis on local produce. Lewes hosts an annual Bonfire Night which is so spectacular with the most amazing procession through the narrow streets and the to the large firework display, A must visit Lewes is only 15 mins on the train from Seaford/Bishopstone to Drive 15 mins
