Lost Buildings of Worthing is a lavishly illustrated record of dozens of handsome and historic buildings that have been demolished over the last 125 years. It is also a social history of Worthing, with compelling narratives about residents and visitors associated with the buildings discussed.


The first section, ‘Lost on the Seafront’, features over twenty buildings that used to stand on Marine Parade; the second, ‘Lost in the Town’, deals with the historic heart of Worthing; and the third, ‘Lost on the Periphery’, focuses on buildings on the edge of the town, including those that stood on the ancient estates of Charmandean and Offington.


There are more than two hundred engravings and photographs, together with six extracts from the Ordnance Survey map of 1879.
