Shoreham by Sea is a small coastal town in West Sussex, which has a history dating back to the time before the Roman occupation. There is evidence of this at Thundersbarrow Hill in Old Shoreham where there is evidence of an enclosure as well as a Romano-British village. Also on Slonk Hill there was once an Iron Age hill fort. In the Domesday Book of 1086 it is named as Soresham. It was a port in Norman times when the main export was wool and the main import, wine. The port is on the River Adur, just at the point where it flows into the English Channel. New Shoreham (as distinct from the old village of Shoreham) was established there in the 11th century and this went on to become one of the most important channel ports in England during the 12th and 13th centuries, although it began to fall into decline in the 14th. The two Shorehams became one due to expansion in the 20th century, so now we have Shoreham-by-Sea, still with a working port.
