Your fundraising help required!

Do you want to support the Littlehampton Fort Restoration Project, but can’t really, or don’t really want to be on site getting your hands dirty?
If the answer is yes, and you have fund raising ideas or experience please drop us a message andy@littlehamptonfort.co.uk


We have to self generate our funds to work and operate as a charity, and desperately need to raise funds to enable us to continue with our good work, down on the Fort. All ideas and suggestions welcome and much appreciated.

Still Some Work To Do – Please Bear With Us

We’re still working hard to get the site ready for its live launch. It may be that when we first launch the site there are some pages which are missing content etc. This should only be for the first few days of going live – sorry to say that this can’t be helped as we’re trying to move huge (with a capital H) amount of information, and we need to ensure that it has all been moved successfully and without incidence – I won’t bore you with the technical details, but lets just say that the technology is having a sulk in the corner.

What I will do is let you know when everything is up and running.

EDIT: The site is now up and running. We’re still in the process of adding some content from the old site.

Research Project – Isaac Evans Walter

We received a research request from a relative of Isaac Evans Walter

I am interested to know if you know where the families of the  Soldiers lived in 1880 or there about. I have a family member who died while stationed at Littlehampton and I assume it was at the fort as he was Royal Garrison Artillery. From your excellent photos I know they could have lived in the town close by.  The name of my relative was Isaac Evans Walters and anything you can add would be appreciated. Sadly he took his own life and it has been difficult to find information on him. Thank you for your efforts with the fort and I wish you good fortune in the future.

This was passed onto our lead researcher Hilary Greenwood to do a bit of digging, and this is what she found out –

This was passed onto the the relatives and we received a lovely thank you email back
