Having been born at Shoreham’s Southlands Hospital, in 1951 and spent my first seven or eight years living in Southwick, I’ve collected a few images of the area in the the subsequent years.
I remember as infants at the Green School in Southwick, that we built a large model of the Brighton A and B power stations out of cardboard in about 1957. However, I think we all referred to it as Shoreham Power Station. Perhaps we didn’t want Southwick associated with us!
Transporting the stacks
This pic is a very old real photo (maybe end of the 1800s?) and seems to show the base of one of the two stacks being brought into Southwick/Shoreham harbour. Mystery ship at Southwick is the caption.
