Project ID: SMR1010
Location: Shoreham, West Sussex
Project date: 2018
A partial excavation was undertaken of an unusual keyhole-shaped brick structure breaking the ground surface just west of Shoreham Fort. The fort had been occupied during the Second World War as a coast artillery battery and this feature is believed to have been a spigot mortar (anti-tank weapon) pit on account of its shape, dimensions and presence of a pedestal.
