Littlehampton Swing Bridge

Littlehampton Swing Bridge

Littlehampton's Swing Bridge, opened in 1908, a dramatic feature on the River Arun until its demolition in 1980. ... In 1973 a new road bridge was completed a little further up river and following the Swing Bridge's demolition a new footbridge, which is in use today, was built on its piers.

Loved this model, shame it's behind glass.
Some interesting footage from BFI archives.

Jack and Jill @ Clayton

Clayton Windmills, a local landmark with Jack, the Black Mill as used in the movie "The Black WIndmill" with Michael Caine.

Painting by David R. G. Johnstone-2017.
There is an old print/photo, I think it's in The James Gray Collection, identical view but without the cart (some time in 1800s?)

Ammonite, on loan from Robert Randall.

Ammonite, on loan from Robert Randall.

Ammonite parapuzosie from the Cretacious period 80 million years ago. Found in the cliffs at Peacehaven, Sussex.
Not the sort of creature you would want to meet at sea, they grow to over 6ft (2m) and hunt by stealth catching their prey with tentacles and devouring with a massive beak like the Giant Squid of today.
This particular sample is approx 4ft diameter and well preserved.

Remarkable quality flint work. Not sure of the date on the plaque, I think 1706, will check next visit.

Enter the Museum at your peril

There maybe some info in the Museum as to which ship the Anchors and Cannon are from.
A Saker, definitely a Naval piece. Nelson probably had 3 or 4 of these in his stern cabin at Trafalgar.
