Listing Text

TQ 20 NW
12.10.54 Old Shoreham Bridge


Road bridge, formerly toll, now restricted to pedestrians. 1781, restored in C20.
Timber baulks, some reinforced, with diagonal struts carry shallow arched bridge with
balustrade of 3 horizontal bars on wooden uprights. 500 feet long with 27 spans.
Twelve feet wide with 2 recesses, 24 feet wide, for passing vehicles. Causeways of
faggots sunk in marshland to west connecting the bridge with dry-land. Despite being
largely rebuilt in the early C20 this bridge is of great interest as being probably
the last example on a large scale of a form of bridge which was extremely common in
the C18 and C19. The western half of this bridge is in Lancing CP and is also listed
in that Parish.
