A Charter of King John mentions a ferry at Shoreham. It was also mentioned
in a Court case of 1249, and again in papers of 1263. In 1302 this ferry
is identified from New Shoreham to Lancing and again identified as a passagium
in 1316 and a ferry in 1327and 1332.
The wooden bridge over the River
Adur at Old Shoreham was built, replacing a ferry. The evidence for
the date comes from an Act of Parliament. There does not appear to be any
evidence of any subsequent construction so it is probable that the same
bridge remained until 1916 when the bridge was rebuilt to its previous
design, with just a few minor modifications.

ADUR FESTIVAL ENTRIES
Shoreham and the River Adur's seafaring traditions stretch back for over a millenium. In the days of sailing ships the public hards each side of the Coronation Green were important for loading and unloading cargo and Shoreham has a history of seafaring and fishing that stretches back centuries to the beginning of written records and before.
Adur Festival celebrates this tradition and the local connection with the
sea with the opening procession from St. Mary de Haura church down East
