Seafront shelter, early C20.


An early C20 seafront shelter, erected by 1930. The roof was re-tiled in the 1930s or subsequently. Constructed of wood with glazed panels and hipped tiled roof on a concrete base.

It is rectangular on plan, divided into six compartments.

The roof has small end gablets. The eaves overhang and the structure is supported on ten turned wooden posts, two at each end and three along each side, to which are attached the compartment walls. The upper parts of the walls are glazed multi-pane square glazing. The lower parts of the walls are solid wooden panels with moulded dado rails and plinth.


This seafront shelter is one of two adjoining identical shelters along De La Warr Parade. It is not shown on the Third Edition 25 inch Ordnance Survey map of 1909 but appears on the Fourth Edition sheet of 1930.
