The view from Shoreham to Lancing College Chapel. In the early 13th century Shoreham became both a borough and a royal port designated by King John, his bother Richard having kept the royal galleys here. In 1346 it was to provide more vessels for the siege of Calais and the Crecy campaign than London, Dover, Bristol or Southampton. Several English monarchs passed through, including Charles II escaping after the battle of Worcester.
