Join us on this Archaeology & Heritage Field Trip to Newhaven Fort in East Sussex. The defences and surrounding area have a fascinating history dating back to the Iron Age but the present fort is the result of a succession of updating over the last 150 or so years. https://www.newhavenfort.org.uk. 

We will meet at Newhaven Fort at 10:30. Please note that individual Entrance fees are payable on the day. There is a 5ft 11in height barrier at the car park.

The day will begin with a brief introduction by one of the Fort visitor advisers after which we will be free to explore the area. A light lunch may be purchased from the Tea Room.

After lunch we will move on to the Tide Mills archaeological site. http://tidemills.webs.com/ which includes the remains of the Tide Mills village, Chailey Hospital and the First World War Naval Air Station.

Newhaven Fort is a Palmerston fort built in the 19th century to defend the harbour at Newhaven, on the south coast of England. It was the largest defence work ever built in Sussex and is now open as a museum
