Registered Charity No. 1158790

The Museum is run entirely by volunteers and relies on entry fees and fund raising to pay running costs, the most expensive of which are electricity and insurance.
Any donations are very welcome and we have just installed a facility to pay on line via PayPal. If you would like to donate, you can do so via the link below. We would not be able to acknowledge donations but they would be much appreciated.

Sorry, the bridge is closed....

For a short period from 2nd April access to the Museum across the footbridge will be closed. This is to allow essential repair work on the main front door and door frame. This door is part of the Scheduled Monument and is of significant heritage importance. It will be carefully removed and taken to a specialist joinery workshop where it will receive expert attention to help ensure it provides a further 200+ years service.
We hope to have the door back and the bridge re-opened by Friday 19th April - a week later than estimated.
Access to the Museum will still be possible through the “side” door, but the steps down are unsuitable for visitors with limited mobility. The internal lift will remain available.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused by this temporary interference with normal service.

Newhaven Fort, Seaford’s Martello Tower and The Redoubt Fortress in Eastbourne have joined forces to create the Sussex Coastal Forts partnership (SCF)

This SCF partnership has introduced a shared ticketing scheme and visitors to any one of the three attractions can take their ‘proof of entry’ from their first visit to either of the other two attractions and gain reduced admission.
