Listing Text


Seafront shelter, early C20.

Reason for Listing

A seafront shelter on De Le Warr Parade, opposite Lionel Road, is listed at Grade II for the following principal reasons:
* Architectural: mainly of traditional materials and style but glazed panels show an Art Deco influence;
* Degree of Completeness: roof re-tiled probably in 1930s but intact below;
* Group Value: it forms part of a group of four late C19 and early C20 seaside shelters built to three different designs.


This seafront shelter is one of two adjoining identical shelters along De La Warr Parade. It is not shown on the Third Edition 25 inch Ordnance Survey map of 1909 but appears on the Fourth Edition sheet of 1930.


An early C20 seafront shelter, erected by 1930. The roof was re-tiled in the 1930s or subsequently. Constructed of wood with glazed panels and hipped tiled roof on a concrete base.

It is rectangular on plan, divided into six compartments.

The roof has small end gablets. The eaves overhang and the structure is supported on ten turned wooden posts, two at each end and three along each side, to which are attached the compartment walls. The upper parts of the walls are glazed multi-pane square glazing. The lower parts of the walls are solid wooden panels with moulded dado rails and plinth.
