Adur Valley still a no go area for the May Bank Holiday Monday.
East Sussex the important Black Rock to Rottingdean
path is closed because of a cliff fall.
the notices have now blown down near Shoreham and Southwick

History of Shoreham-by-Sea
Museum: Toll Bridge
have started this year's new season on 1 May at Marlipins
with a feature on the Toll Bridge,
in conjunction with the Toll Bridge Community Partnership which is
to raise £500,000 to preserve the bridge. West Sussex County Council
likely to support this very substantially, and a Lottery bid is going in,
leaving the local community to raise some £100,000. Help has already
been forthcoming from local people and Old Lancing boys and there are various
ambitious and exciting fundraising schemes in prospect, not least the raffling
of a delightful watercolour of the bridge which is on display at Marlipins
until the Shoreham Society's AGM on 18 May.
exhibition at Marlipins lasts from 1 to 19 May. Andy and all the other
visitors will see several views of the toll bridge over the last 200 years,
through watercolours, prints and photographs. One of the loveliest is a
print of cattle crossing the bridge about 1860, from the original watercolour
by Miles Birket Foster, but there are also 20th century postcards and newspaper
articles, discussing the closure and the last toll keeper. It is a very
picturesque and historical structure and well worth preserving.
