After the First World War, the acute housing shortage saw a range of informal settlements spring up on largely marginal land, offering a range of housing opportunities. Shoreham Beach was home to one such settlement. It is famous for being in the forefront of film making, named the ‘Hollywood of West Sussex ‘. Bungalow Town was where many film and music hall stars built homes.
