Missing sign mystery

A SIGN listing places of interest in Shoreham has gone missing.

The information panel used to be in Buckingham Park and what has happened to it remains a mystery.

The Shoreham Society has been asked if it can help but member Adrian Towler said nobody knew where or when the sign went.

“I reckon it may have been stolen for scrap metal,” he added.

Adur Council said it had no information either.

A spokesman said: “We are not sure why and how it went missing but the good news is that we are going to replace it with a very similar one, replicate where possible, made of aluminium as it won’t have any scrap value.

“We will place the order in the new year and think it will take up to six to eight weeks to arrive and be fitted.”

The sign, headed Shoreham-By-Sea Places of Interest, reads: “Parish church of St Mary, 12th century.

“Church of St Nicholas, Old Shoreham, 10th century.

“Church of St Julian, Kingston Buci, 11th century.

“Marlipins Museum, High Street, 12th century.

“Wooden Bridge, Old Shoreham.

“Shoreham Beach.

“Harbour mouth, lifeboat houseand lighthouse, Kingston.

“Thundersbarrow Hill, showing Romano-British site and earthworks.

“Buckingham Park.

“Mill Hill, with view of river valley, English Channel and Lancing College.”
