The Worthing Society Archive is being developed to record the history of the Society and our Campaigns to protect and conserve Worthing’s unique heritage. There will be illustrations of the buildings lost to the town before the Society was established and the buildings we have saved such as The Dome, the Burlington and Beach House The Worthing Society was formed in 1982 and was originally the Worthing Civic Society, founded in 1973.
Our Archive will also have an ‘Open Section’ for our members to add individual research about their own properties or other details about the town’s social history. This will extend and broaden Worthing’s heritage map, capturing information which may otherwise be lost. We feel an inter active Archive is important to encourage interest and research into Worthing’s architectural and social history. I hope it will be enjoyed by our Society members and local residents. More details about how to submit articles will be uploaded to the Website as development of the Archive progresses.
