Littlehampton line-up, thanks Pete: as a kid in 1950's, we used to go there for the seaside, from my Gran's in Findon.

Hi Pat,well at the time your talking about(1950's)this station was certainly not there,it was built and opened round about 1970 in the actual same spot as Littlehamptons old station.Appliances then would have been an Austin K2 Escape Carrying Unit(pump escape)which was ex-NFS,and a Dennis Light-Four(new world)open pump.Also allocated to the old station at the time was a 1954 Bedford SP Emergency Pump(AFS-Green Goddess).
Reference Findon:Having given now some 70 years loyal service to the community of Findon from an old barn during the last war to its present station in the village opened in the 1950's,Findon Fire Brigade may soon no longer be part of village life.Findon is one of 3 stations in the county of West Sussex to possibly be closed in the not to distant future.No further comment.

I agree Pete. Don't think Worthing will cope with the extra workload albeit Lancing's calls may go up.
